Christmas Hub Banner Hub Page

Yes, welcome indeed to the hub for all activities and events on offer this Christmas from SRMC and friends.  Please scroll down this page to find a variety of events including Christmas services, carols, and nativity plays [both animated and real life].  And plenty of activities for you and your family to join in, including Christmas puzzles, crafts, cooking, and even a scarecrow trail.  Also, ideas about how to have a more eco-friendly Christmas and how to take Christmas outdoors to neighbours and friends.  Where we can’t provide something but think it’s a good idea then we also have included some links for you to explore, where you’ll find lots more Christmas goodies.

Lastly, don’t miss our virtual Christmas tree where you can see personal greetings from some of our fellowship folk – and why not add a greeting yourself!

So, enjoy – all are welcome!

Greetings from the SRMC family

For previous Christmas celebrations at SRMC, many of us have added personal messages to decorate a tree in our building, messages of best wishes, encouragement, hope, etc.   This year we have a digital tree that will be ‘decorated’ with Christmas images containing messages from members of the SRMC fellowship.  You can
view here the 'Greetings Tree'.  And if you are a member of the fellowship why not add your own message by contacting us with that message.
