Celebrate Christmas with the St J’s Group

Churches in Peasedown, Wellow and Shoscombe will be hosting a range of Christmas services this coming festive season to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. St John’s Church in Peasedown, St Julian’s in Wellow and St Julian’s in Shoscombe are all part of the St J’s Group of Anglican Churches, which are led by Revd Matthew Street.

Between them, nativity services, Midnight Communion, Christmas Celebrations and carols in the pub will take place in the three villages.

Revd Matthew Street commented:

“Everyone is welcome to come and celebrate Christmas with us this year. Our services will explore the miracle of Jesus’ birth and prompt us to think more about its significance for us today.

For Christians, we remember that Jesus’ birth meant so much more than a baby in a manger. It was God coming to live amongst us. Come and find about more about this amazing truth this Christmas in the St J’s Group.”
