Christmas 2020


This year we are likely to have the strangest Christmas since the very first one, over 2000 years ago, when Mary and Joseph journeyed to Bethlehem, and Mary gave birth to Jesus. His birth still resonates because, in becoming human, he understands what it is like to be us: including in difficult times. Sadly, much that we have traditionally done at Christmas is not possible this year, but please see below for the events we are able to have.

The Reverend Simon Grigg, Rector of St. Paul’s
