Sunday 1st January – The Naming and Circumcision of Jesus

With much of secular society now putting away the decorations, it’s worth bearing in mind that we are still only half-way through the twelve days of Christmas in terms of the church calendar. We celebrate the coming of the Lord through to the festival of the Epiphany, on the 6th of January (and beyond, of course!).

This Sunday we mark the naming and circumcision of Jesus. There will be an 8am Holy Communion in Lavenham and a 9am at Preston St Mary. The choir will be resting this Sunday after their heavy duties last week, so the 10.15 Eucharist in Lavenham will be said rather than sung…

…but we will have carols so you can start the New Year on the right note by coming to church and joining with us in our celebration of new beginnings.

Details of these services, the litany and dates for your diary in the week ahead are on the Pew Sheet for 1 Jan 2012
