Christmas Services and events

Like last year, we are holding an online Christmas Fair on Facebook during November and December.
It's a great opportunity to get unique gifts, while also supporting our local community.

Our traditional in-church Christmas Fair is also on 25th November (see below).
Traders who would like a stall on Facebook and/or in church, please email Val at .

Parish Eucharist (Worship for All) and Toy Service - Sunday 19th November 10.30-11.45am

(Donations accepted until the end of November)

We are again donating to the Tameside Christmas Toy Appeal, whose volunteers wrap donated gifts and distribute them to families with children in poverty, throughout Tameside in time for Christmas.
Toys - and clothing items such as hats, socks, scarves etc - for all age groups up to 16yrs will be gratefully received.
Please note all gifts should be new, unwrapped, and unfortunately soft toys cannot be donated.
We can also accept financial donations which will be used to purchase toys.
If you would like to donate a gift but are not able to get to the Toy Service, please feel free to bring it to Church before the end of November.

Saturday 2nd December, 10-12noon & 1-3pm

Santa is coming and we are having Brunch with him on 2nd December!
Due to the high demand for this event last year, we have invited Santa to 2 sittings, which he has gratefully acknowledged.

There will be a visit from Santa, a gift for each child and a light meal for everyone.  The cost is £5 per child and £3 per adult.

Bookings can be made by email to Please state when enquiring, the no. of adults, no. of children, and the first name and age of each child (so Santa can bring a suitable gift).  The maximum number per table is 6.

We listened to your comments last year and have made some improvements which we hope will make the visit even more enjoyable!
