PARKING IN HILPERTON

We are very grateful to the Lion and Fiddle in Hilperton who have given permission for people attending the 8.00am and 10.00am services in St Michael's Church. Parking is also usually available in Hilperton Village Hall, Whaddon Lane. Both are a short walk from the church. 

BLUE CHRISTMAS SERVICE - when Christmas hurts

This will take place on Wednesday 11th December at 4.00pm at St Mary Magdalen's Church in Horse Road (The Tin Church).

It is for those people who find Christmas a difficult time of year, and struggle to join in with the jollity around them. This is a quiet reflective service, where you are invited to come and reflect quietly on the hope of the Christ Child and leave some of your burden of pain and sorrow behind.

                               Blue Christmas
