Due to restrictions associated with Covid-19, this year places of worship are having to limit attendance at events this Christmas. In order to safeguard everyone, the service time has been changed and we are reminded that;
Facemasks must be worn for the duration of the service and people are asked to limit their movements.
Everyone will be asked to sanitise their hands upon entering and leaving the church building.
Attendance at our services will be recognised as permission to record your personal details in order to comply with NHS Track & Trace.
People can sit together in a group of up to 6 people max, providing they are in their ‘Christmas bubble’, otherwise all social distancing rules will apply.
The singing of carols/hymns will not be permitted, although music will be streamed that is familiar to everyone in order to enhance the feel at the service.
Although we appreciate coming together for Christmas is important to families, the church is now limited to being able to accommodate people that arrive without pre-booking beforehand. If you are interested in attending any of our events this Christmas, you are kindly asked to complete the enquiry form on our website.
Candlelit Service of Carols & Lessons – Sunday 20th @6.30pm
This year, The Live Nativity will be in the form of a Nativity Trail through the town from 12th December until Christmas. The trail can be started from either Trago or Falmouth Methodist Church (at The Moor). You’ll then travel along the high street hunting for pictures of Nativity Characters (such as Mary, Joseph and Shepherds) ‘hidden’ in shop windows. Hint: much of the route will follow the journey of the Live Nativity and use similar ‘inns’ to host the characters!
