What kind of Christmas are you?
Real tree? Or plastic? Carols by candlelight? Or office party? Queen’s speech? Or Doctor Who special?

A bit of a Scrooge? Or a serious shopper? A fan of Santa? Or not so much? Planning a big family gathering? Or missing the ones you love the most?

However you're feeling about Christmas this year, we invite you to take some time to explore the things that really matter, things that make sense of our joys and longings, our struggles and our pain. See below for details of our FREE events and services.

At these you will hear about the real Jesus and what that first Christmas has to do with us all. If you'd like to explore Jesus more with us, scroll down for more details, or click the button and we'll be in touch:

Is Christmas Unbelievable?

Is Christmas Unbelievable? is a brand new book by Rebecca McLaughlin that asks the big questions about Christmas and about our own story as human beings:

  • Was Jesus even a real person?
  • Can we take the Bible seriously?
  • How can you believe in a virgin birth?
  • Why does it even matter?

If you'd like to pick up your copy at ChristChurch, you can do so at any of the events above, or click below to let us know you'd like one.
