Christmas 2020

2020 has been quite the rollercoaster of a year, but Christmas isn't cancelled! It just won't look the same for Worle Baptist Church as it normally does. Even though our way of life has had to change quite dramatically this year, God never changes and his faithful love for us will never end. He sent his son to rescue the world, and we are now living in the light of God's peaceful, loving kingdom. Now that's worth celebrating!

This page provides details for what we hope Christmas 2020 will look like, but please know that this is all subject to change or cancellation depending on variables in government guidelines. We have back-up plans in place, should they be needed, and these will be communicated here, so please check back closer to the time of each event for any changes.

All events will take place in a covid-secure manner - expect social distancing, face coverings, and hand sanitiser. Lots of hand sanitiser. Please follow our one-way systems (where applicable) and guidance from the marshals; your safety is our priority. If you would like to attend any of these events, but have worries or concerns relating to covid-19, please contact us. Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of Covid-19.

Come along to our car park any time between 3.30 and 4.15pm on Saturday 19th December to make a Christingle and to find out more about the message of Jesus and the hope he brings us this Christmas time. 

If you are arriving by car, please park considerately along Rawlins Avenue or use the Castlemead Shopping Centre car park.

Please arrive in your household bubble and do not mix with other bubbles. Christingle making will be carried out in a covid-secure manner. The wearing of face coverings is recommended for those aged 11+.

Usually on Christmas Eve, our car park is filled with people shoulder-to-shoulder as we are joined by WorleWind Band to kick-start our Christmas celebrations with carols, mince pies, hot chocolate and mulled wine. Unfortunately, as you know, this just isn't possible this year.

Instead, we're planning a variation on a theme with a Walk-Through Carols in the Car Park event. There will be music! There will be lights! There will be mince pies (hopefully)! We will also be giving you Christingle-making packs for you to do at home alongside a YouTube video that will be available closer to the time.

If you are arriving by car, please park considerately along Rawlins Avenue or use the Castlemead Shopping Centre car park.

We will be having a short Christmas Day service to celebrate the birth of our saviour and king. You are welcome to bring along one or two presents to show!

To ensure the safety of all those in attendance, please book in using the form below by Friday 18th December so that we can plan accordingly. If we have more people than we have space to accommodate (in light of social distancing restrictions), we will do two services so nobody misses out! Please check back here during the week commencing 21st Dec for confirmed service details.

Each year, Worle Baptist Church takes part in the WEBox Appeal by collecting shoeboxes filled with gifts from local churches, schools, organisations, companies and groups before they are transported to Albania to be distributed amongst the children. 

The events of the past year in Albania, with the earthquake at the end of 2019, and now Covid-19, mean that this year there is even more of a need for the WEBoxes.
