On Sunday, 17 December, a double christening service took place. Both Lily Abigail, daughter of Laura and Mark McCullough, and Charlotte Alice, daughter of Christine and Stuart Curran, were christened by the Rev. Norman Hutton, who patiently carried them around the church to introduce them to the congregation.

In keeping with tradition, the Sunday School and members of the congregation brought toys for the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal.

The Christmas Eve Carol Service included a nativity drama by the Sunday School children; it was entitled A Christmas Pass the Parcel. This featured poems and singing, accompanied by the Manor Quartet, after which the children distributed sweets to the congregation. The choir sang the beautiful carol 'Child in a Manger' accompanied by the organist Mrs Madge McNelis. The service concluded with the singing of 'Jingle Bells' and 'Santa Claus'.

On Christmas Morning a short service was held at 11am, conducted by the Rev. Norman Hutton.

The first commandment is this: "Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord, and you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength." The second is this: "You must love your neighbour as yourself." No other commandment is greater than these.

Mark 12:29-31

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
