Advent and Christmas 2022

Journey through advent with us in various ways and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas at one of our services or events in the coming winter weeks.

Advent Bible Study

If you would like a quiet space to reflect upon the meaning of Christmas, come along to Mayfield and Easthouses church every Thursday in advent from 10am-11am. In a small group setting, we will read, think, meditate, listen, share and discuss the meaning of Jesus’ birth and discover how it is relevant to our lives today. Everyone is welcome to our gatherings on 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd December.

Advent Afternoon with Christingle Service

Have you ever made a Christingle? In Mayfield and Easthouses church we are holding a special all-age advent afternoon on Sunday 11th December from 2pm-3pm for a fun time of Christingle-making followed by a short family service. You will have the opportunity to enjoy snacks, make your own Christingle and discover the meaning behind it as well as join our church community for what promises to be a meaningful and memorable experience.
