Fill the Van: Trent Kids and Trent Youth
We’re asking Trent Kids (0-11s) and Trent Youth (11-18s) to help us fill the van with a new toy or gift for someone of their age. These donations will bless families living in temporary accommodation this Christmas. We are encouraging those who want to donate to drop the gift off between the 16 Nov and 04 Dec at The Arches' socially distanced drop-off zone and if you are planning to donate to this and the Love Your Neighbour: Christmas Boxes we would encourage you to drop it all off on one trip. Please click here for drop-off times. Please also wrap the gift and label it with the age/gender that the gift is for.
Carol Service: Online
Christmas will look a little different this year and so will the carol service! This year our creative team is putting together a moving production entitled ‘Home for Christmas’. It will feature a beautiful drama, a Christmas message and, of course, Christmas carols.
It promises to be one of our most Creative carol services yet. It's been written especially to celebrate the message of Christmas in the midst of 2020, with a strong message of hope and redemption and we believe it will be absolutely perfect for inviting friends who don't know Jesus.
This year our Carol Service will be streamed online (on our YouTube channel) on 19 December at 19:45 (pre hosting) for a 20:00 start.
Carol Service: Drive-in
Over the weekend of 19/20 December we are hoping and planning that there will also be viewings of the Carol Service in our car park! We’re talking… Carol Service at the drive-in! Sign up here.
We will be hosting drive-in showings at 18:00 and 20:00 on both Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 December.
Don't worry if you don't have access to a car, there'll be provision for you to watch the Carol Service with others in the Trent Kids' centre auditorium at 18:00 on 19/20 December. To book a ticket go to here. Please only choose this option if you don't have access to a car to make space for others.
