What is Christmas?

Christmas is when we celebrate that God so loved the world that he came to the earth as a baby to live among us, experience life as we do, show us an example of how to live, and eventually through what he achieved in his death and resurrection, offer us life in all its fullness.

The Lost Knit-tivity

Can you help find all the hidden nativity characters?

Christmas Tree Festival

For one weekend, Friday 14th to Sunday 16th, trees from around the island are on display at West Mersea Free Church.

What's Happening?

This year we’re holding our annual Christmas Tree Festival, Carol, Christingle and Christmas services alongside our normal Sundays in Advent series. We’re also running the hunt for the Lost Knit-tivity. You’re most welcome to join us this Advent.
