A Quieter Christmas

A Quieter Christmas

7.00 pm Sherborne Abbey

For the past six years Lesley McCreadie and Jane Craw have organised A Quieter Christmas. This is a delightfully quiet, reflective time just before Christmas for those who find the busyness of this season a struggle. Anyone can come. You may be thinking especially of a loved one at this time or it may simply be that you feel that a little oasis before the big event may benefit you and put the time of Christmas into its right perspective. Whatever your situation, this service allows us all to draw near to God to steady, refresh and still our hearts for the coming of Christ. A Quieter Christmas will take place in The Lady Chapel. Please come and join us.  Do telephone Jane (01963 251527) if you need a lift.
