Tickets for Advent Carol Service and Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols 2019

Our hope is for everyone to have a meaningful and memorable experience of worship during Advent and Christmas. Regretfully, this year our seating capacity is greatly reduced due to essential building and restoration work. While we have increased the number of major services, unfortunately not everyone will be able to get a ticket or a seat for the more popular services. Furthermore, there may be limited visibility of the service from a number of seats.

For this reason, we're taking part in the Church of England's #FollowtheStar campaign and have joined together with our sister church, St Michael's Without in Broad Street, BA1 5LJ to encourage everyone to go to their local church Christmas service or event, and to go further on their Christian journey. For more information, please visit: www.achurchnearyou.com

We thank you for your patience and support. Ticket applications will be processed strictly in order of receipt and there will need to be a strict limit on the number of tickets issued to any one family or household. The churchwardens will, in every case, make the process as fair as it can possibly be, and will be glad of everyone’s co-operation and understanding.
