Christmas Worship links and an invitation to Christmas Zoffee this morning


Merry Christmas from Seal Church

Here are the links for our online Christmas worship. You can also find them on our website
Jess Heeb has kindly offered to host a Zoffee at 11.15 am today, so that we can exchange Christmas greetings. The link is below. Do drop in if you'd like to, even if it is only for a few minutes.
Many thanks to all who have read, prayed, sung, filmed, cleaned the church, welcomed people, and cared behind the scenes in the strange times we are in.

Even if it isn't quite the same as usual, or the same as we hoped for, God is with us! May you have a blessed Christmas.

The First Communion of Christmas. A video of the "Midnight" Mass (actually at 9pm) celebrated last night, including a Christmas sermon and the Eucharist.  Service sheet here.

Audio podcast of Christmas Day worship including this year's Christmas story. Service sheet here.

Stories for Christmas. A story a day for the twelve days of Christmas, starting with this year's Christmas story. From Boxing Day each until Jan 6 a different story will be available, from the church blog from 5pm - in time for bed, or a cosy listen on the sofa with a beverage of your choice! I have chosen the stories  from those I've told on previous Christmas Day services at Seal. They come to you in lieu of the many cards and thanks I should have offered, but haven't had time for this year. Please accept these as my Christmas gift to you. I hope you will enjoy them (and Philip's lovely bassoon playing at the end of each story!).

And in case you missed them when they first came out...

Online Crib service, building the crib with the help of Esme, Ana and Isla, with carols from Seal Choir.

Online Carol service with carols from Seal Choir and readings from members of the congregation.

Dec 25, 2020 11:15 AM 

Worship in church
Christmas Day 10 am
There are still a few spaces available, but if you haven't booked it will be on a first come, first served basis. It is important that you consider whether it will be safe and wise for you to come to church in person, and if you are at all in doubt, I hope that you will make use of the many opportunities listed above to join with us in worship online this Christmas. 

Dec 27
Holy Communion 10 am (followed by Zoffee online)
There will be no Story Church or Evensong on Dec 27 and Jan 3. 

I will send an email with the links to Morning and Evening podcasts and the Zoffee on Sunday morning as usual.
