We just wanted to take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy Christmas!
This year has been challenging, hasn’t it? (In fact, you might say it’s been a bit rubbish!) We’re all a bit fed up with lockdowns, facemasks, and all things Covid-related. It can get on top of us and leave us feeling a bit hope-less.
Whilst this Christmas might not be “normal”, and we might miss the parties, work-do’s, shopping, and festivities, perhaps it’s an opportunity to take a minute to remember what’s important about this season.
The Christmas story might just be something you remember from when you were little but it is no fairy tale! Over 2,000 years ago, something happened that not only changed history, it changed everything! It’s the story that we need right now. It’s a story of joy, a story of peace, a story of love, and it’s a story of HOPE!
We’ll be sharing more of this story of hope over the coming weeks at our Christmas services and we would love for you to join us! We will be back meeting in person from December, and our Sunday services will also be broadcast on YouTube.
Wishing you a very blessed Christmas,
All at Corringham Evangelical Church

Please note that we have a strictly limited capacity due to social distancing and must retain contact details for the purposes of ‘track and trace’. We will contact you to confirm which service you have been allocated.
Please note that unfortunately we are not able to walk around Old Corringham carol singing this year due to Government restrictions.
Normally at this time of year we would host Kids’ Zone, a chance for young people to prepare lots of fun crafts and treats just in time for Christmas. Because of Covid-19, we can’t hold this safely in person this year, so instead we’re bringing Kids’ Zone right into your house!
Over on the Kids’ Zone page (which will be published shortly) are lots of craft videos for you to have a go at. Please take a look!
