Come and celebrate Christmas with us at St Mary’s.
A very special Messy Church!
Especially suitable for the under 7’s , this is a nativity play like no other: children (and adults if they wish!) are invited to come dressed as their favourite nativity character – or animal! There is a part for everyone in this version of the Christmas story.
And after tea, we’ll all be in time to join the singing of traditional carols on The Green, to the accompaniment of the Orpington Band. Mulled wine and mince pies served courtesy of the Heritage Trust
