Christmas Services

For once Fr Andrew is getting organised, or perhaps while he is still munching on mince pies Christmas remains in his mind, either way here's a look forward to Christmas 2024!


Date TBC - last Saturday Home Match before Christmas

1.30pm - Christmas Valiant Church! (Holy Trinity)

A festive version of our usual service before the Saturday home games at Port Vale.  All welcome, family friendly and followed by mince pies and hopefully a mighty victory! Up the Vale!

Sunday 15th  December

6.30pm - Carols by Candlelight (S. Saviour's)

Always a Christmas favourite; come along and sing some carols with us as we look forward to celebrating Christ's birth.  Mulled wine and mince pies to follow... come on we know you're tempted!

Sunday 22nd December

1.00pm - Community Carol Singing

An opportunity to spread a little Christmas cheer after the Sunday service.  Probably outside the Community Centre or outside Heron but to be confirmed - do join us!

Tuesday 24th December

9.30am - Mass of the Day (Holy Trinity)

A relaxed start to the Christmas Eve rush


3.00pm Christingle and Crib Service (S. Saviour's)

A fun service for all the family celebrating God's love for us and for the world.  


Tuesday 24th December continued...

6.00pm - First Evening Prayer of Christmas (S. Werburgh's)

A calm quiet beginning to the Christmas period, ideal for those who want a quiet start or need an early night!

7pm - Vigil Mass (S. Werburgh's)

A quieter service for those who want to make their Christmas Communion but don't want to stay up too late!

9.30pm - "Midnight in Bethlehem" Mass with Carols (Holy Trinity)

A traditional mass with carols to kick off Christmas at Holy Trinity, done to coincide with midnight in Bethlehem

11.30pm  -  Midnight Mass (S. Saviour's)

A more traditional service (Christmas like you remember it is the theme this year!) of the birth of Christ. Midnight Mass is one of the highlights of the Christmas season - it marks the beginning of 40 days of feasting and celebration. 


Wednesday 25th December

8am - Mass of the Dawn (S. Saviour's)

An early service especially for those who may be travelling to be with family and so unable to be at the main service

9.00am - Said Mass of Christmas Day (S. Werburgh's)

A short said service to get the day underway.

10.30am - Mass of Christmas Day (Holy Trinity & S. Saviour's)

A family service celebrating the birth of Jesus.  All welcome, children are invited to bring along a gift they have received to show or to play with.  A real family get together before the rest of the family gets together!
