Christmas

Christmas is coming …

Although Christmas may be slightly different this year to normal, we very much intend to celebrate the birth of the Christ-child in style. We still have Christmas events happening over the festive season inline with government guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone in our community.

We ask you to book FREE tickets ahead of our Christmas services so that we can all have a fun and festive (but safe) time together. For all services and tickets please see the schedule below. 

If you are unable to join in person, you can join our services online HERE

There are duplicate services at different times across different days due to high demand so please check dates carefully. 

Once you have selected your free ticket, you will be emailed a copy – PLEASE BRING YOUR TICKETS ALONG WITH YOU ON THE DAY EITHER ON A SMART PHONE OR PRINTED COPY.

If you cannot book tickets online, please email office@stjohnsboxmoor.org.uk or call 01442 260229 and they can be booked for you as long as there is availability. 

Coronavirus Update

We are all learning to live with the pademic and the effects of Covid-19. At present there are no regulations in place preventing in-person, corporate worship. Should that change we will update this page as soon as possible.

Current Protocols in place

  • We ask that you …
    • wear a face covering when moving around or when in a crowded place. Face coverines are not required when seated or when singing – but you are welcome to wear one.
    • observe social distancing where possible – one pew is to be kept clear between pews.
    • sanitise hands when entering or exiting our churches.
    • Track and Trace details are to be given.
    • Communion will be administered in one kind (The Body of Christ).
