Christmas at All Saints peckham, 2023
Christmas is just around the corner and we can't wait to celebrate here in Peckham. Celebrating the birth of Jesus as God's love, come down to earth, we'll also be exploring the desperate journeys many have made to encounter the reckless love offered. With family friendly Christingle, Nativity (with donkey friends) and Christmas Eve Crib Service, there's plenty to help the little ones engage with the true meaning of Christmas. And with two opportunities for Candlelit Carols and a brand new pub singalong, you won't miss out on the traditional songs of the season.
Come along to all that you can this Christmas- you are so welcome. It's almost all free- but for the first time we're hosting a Beer & Carols Night at our neighbours Brick Brewery and that evening costs £10 for a ticket. (See below). Wishing you a very Happy Christmas!

We're starting our Advent season with a family friendly moment of awe and wonder, making our Christingles and remembering the Light of the World who will always conquer the darkness!
