December services

Unfortunately, we have decided to change several of our Christmas events and services to help keep everyone safe during the Christmas period.

Please check our Christmas Services page for the latest information.

Please note there will be no services on Boxing Day.

Marketplace Food Project open evening at Townhill Park Community Centre,  Tuesday 30 November, 7.00– 8.00pm

Southampton City Mission and SO18 Big Local are setting up a marketplace food pantry in Townhill Park. We will be involved in this as a church and would love to be well represented at the meeting and for individuals to be enthused by the plans. If you are not making Christmas wreaths do please try and get along to find out more.

Christmas party

Friday 17 December, 7.00pm– 10.30 pm

[Update 10/12/21] We have been keeping a close eye on government guidance issued in the last week. Unfortunately, due to the governments rules for face masks and places of worship, along with other factors, we have decided to cancel our Christmas party. This decision hasn’t been taken lightly, and it is with sadness that we have done this. However, we look forward to when we can put on a high-quality, safe and fun church social for all of us, and look to rearrange this for when it is appropriate to do so. If you have booked places, we will be in touch soon to refund your ticket

Christmas lunch. If you have nowhere to be on Christmas Day, don’t be alone, come and join with Church family for lunch at Ascension. Contact Ruth for more info or book online.


This Sunday we’re bring back tea and coffee after the 9.00am and before the 10.45am service! If you’re coming to the 10.45am, do come from 10.30am to grab a drink before we start. We’re so looking forward to building community through hospitality before and after the services. Please note we’ll be ensuring our hospitality team are wearing masks and maintaining good hand-hygiene, and will be serving you drinks rather than a help-yourself area.


Thinking about Alpha? Got a friend who you think would like to try Alpha? Come along on 12 January! We’ll be running Alpha again in the church café on Wednesday nights – Alpha is an amazing opportunity for you to ask questions about life and faith in a friendly, open and non-judgemental environment. We’d love to see you and your friends there. Contact Mac for more info or to say you’re coming!
