Christmas is a joyous time, but the realities of life that can often bring us heartache and loneliness, don’t stop in December. This can be particularly true for those who have lost a loved one.
If this time of the year has a spiritual or emotional darkness eclipsing the joy and lights of Christmas for you, do join us for a service in the recently restored Enstone Church on Thursday 21 December at 7.00 pm.
On this, the longest and darkest night of the year, we will gather for a gentle service to sing quiet carols, light candles and offer our feelings to God. We hope that those who attend will find space and time for quietness and reflection and the reassurance that they are not alone and that God is with all those who mourn, with all those who struggle – and that the real message of Christmas comes to shine light into our darkness. The service will last for about 40 minutes.
You are most welcome to attend. Please park in Little Tew Road and walk to the Church through the Churchyard. Do bring a torch!
Should we have another fall of snow, or if the roads are very icy, and it is necessary to cancel the service, we will post a notice on the Benefice website here.
