Seasonal events and church services on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at St. Andrew's (Curry Rivel), St. Martin's (Fivehead) and St. Catherine's (Swell)
Under Government Covid restrictions the number of people who can safely meet in our churches is currently limited. With this, and restrictions over singing, likely to remain the case over Christmas, our Benefice churches have taken the difficult decision to cancel several much loved Christmas season gatherings and services. Hence, we will all have to wait a year for the 'Carols, Bangers & Mash' in Curry Rivel, and for our Carol and Crib services to return.
The good news is that not all our Christmas services have been cancelled: we are still planning to hold Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services. However, these are still subject to restrictions. Therefore, the Christmas Eve 'midnight' service at Curry Rivel, and the Christmas Day Communion services at Swell and Fivehead can ONLY be attended via a pre-booking system.
Please see below for booking details, which can also be found in the December issue of the Curry Rivel News (on-line and the printed version).
