Advent and Christmas 2023 at St. Andrews
All the dates you need to join in with us this year
A warm welcome awaits you
Christmas can be a busy time with gifts to wrap, parties to attend, family to visit and food to prepare. We can easily get caught up in the busyness that leads up to Christmas.
Join us this year and find time for you and your loved ones to take a breather and join in with the greatest true Christmas story, the miracle of Jesus born in a humble stable in the dirt. Remind yourself of the reason we celebrate at this time of year, or maybe discover something new...
