Message from Reverend Chris Peck, rector of the Uplands Group of Parishes

I wonder what Christmas means to you. For some it is a time of joyful family gathering, sharing gifts and celebration; for others it is a time that re-enforces isolation and loneliness with the memory of loved ones no longer present. We recently went to see a play at the Derngate about a dysfunctional family gathering at Christmas. It had us roaring with laughter but also recognising some aspects of dysfunction in our own families which can be highlighted over the Christmas season.

For Christians, Christmas is a time of affirming the love and light of Christ which shines in the darkest of corners; our churches are places where everyone can come and find a welcome and hear again that story that never ceases to touch us because it brings hope in the midst of our often troubled lives and troubled world. There is a place for you whether it is at a carol service, a crib service, a living nativity, a Christmas communion on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning.

 the coming of the Christ child into the world with a blaze of lighted candles and feel again the glory and joy of the angels and shepherds. In January we continue to keep that light alive as we celebrate the spreading of the good news throughout the world at Epiphany and prepare for Candlemas where we celebrate the presentation of Christ in the Temple.

The Christ child welcomes us with open arms. You are welcome whenever you decide to come; we look forward to seeing you. Whether you join with us or not, may you know the joy of the angels, the eagerness of the shepherds, the perseverance of the wise men, the obedience of Joseph and Mary and the peace of the Christ child this Christmas and into the coming year.

Rev Chris Peck

From the beginning of December we begin to prepare with the celebration of Advent when we look forward through the darkness towards the coming light; then we celebrate the coming of the Christ child into the world with a blaze of lighted candles and feel again the glory and joy of the angels and shepherds. In January we continue to keep that light alive as we celebrate the spreading of the good news throughout the world at Epiphany and prepare for Candlemas where we celebrate the presentation of Christ in the Temple.


The Christ child welcomes us with open arms. You are welcome whenever you decide to come; we look forward to seeing you. Whether you join with us or not, may you know the joy of the angels, the eagerness of the shepherds, the perseverance of the wise men, the obedience of Joseph and Mary and the peace of the Christ child this Christmas and into the coming year.
