Carols at Castlepoint, Bournemouth!

On Saturday 2nd December between 2.00 & 2.30 HMB will be singing carols outside M&S at Castlepoint in Bournemouth. Then, between 2.30 & 3.30, Peter Aston will be singing carols and other seasonal songs at ASDA at Castlepoint. Come on down for a good old sing!

Carols around the Tree

This year Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday and at 6.00 you’re invited to ‘Carols around the Tree’ on the lawn at Holtwood Methodist Church.  After a good sing we’ll adjourn to the Hall for seasonal refreshments.  What a great way to celebrate Christmas Eve together!

Stir-Up Sunday and Advent

Coming up at Holtwood on 26th November and 3rd December – a two part service with HMB looking at, on the 26th, Stir-Up Sunday and what it could mean for us today and then, on the 3rd, how Stir-Up Sunday relates to the beginning of Advent. Both services start at 6.00 – it would be great to have a full church!

The evening will be led by Revd Suzie Allen and Revd Nigel Deller with music by HMB. If it’s wet we’ll be in St James’ Church at Holt – but hopefully we’ll see you on the Green in the sunshine!
