Christmas is coming!

Holy Trinity Hastings (HTH) welcomes the local community to come together and celebrate Christmas with festive worship and fun.

HTH Vicar, Simon Larkin says, “We hope Christmas will be a time full of joy for everyone. It’s a great time to show how we care for our local community, and that’s why we welcome everyone of any age to come and enjoy our festive events.

“We start getting into the festive spirit on 2 December at our morning Sunday services, where everyone can come wearing their favourite Christmas jumper. The following Sunday on the 9 December, we have our Nativity experience service with real animal petting for all the family. On the 16 December, we’ve got a special carol service which will take us on a creative journey of discovery looking at ‘The Gift’ we have in Jesus, followed by hot Christmas drinks and mince pies.

“Our candlelit Christingle service on the 23 December with its carol singing and kids’ craft session is also very popular with families.

“And there’s always a chance to chat over a hot cup of tea or coffee between or after our services, when everyone can relax and get to know each other. So, whether it’s your first time at HTH or you are just visiting the area and need a bit of company, we would love you to come and join in our Christmas celebrations.”
