We hope that you can join us for one or more of our Advent and Christmas services and events – there’s something for everyone!
And if you’re looking for somewhere to pick up a Christmas tree, why not come along to our annual Christmas Tree Sale run by the bellringers? It’s happening in the churchyard on Saturday 2nd December from 9am – for pre-order information, see the Bellringers’ Christmas Tree Sale page.

Throughout December, bring along the family to hunt in the church for ten special stones that tell the story of the Nativity. There is a worksheet for children to fill in if they would like to. And, if they find all ten stones, they can go to see Alison in the parish office to collect a prize!
There are also 8 painted rocks around Westbury-on-Trym and in 5 locations you can use your phone to watch the stories of Mary, Joseph, the Shepherds, the Wise Men and Jesus. You can find the rocks by following the map Nativity Rocks Map
On Saturday 23rd December from 10.30am, there will be a festive programme of organ music associated with the seasons of Advent and Christmas. Coffee, tea and cake will be served from 10.30am, and the 40-minute recital will begin at 11am. For more information, see our Organ Elevenses page.
