We know that Christmas will look a little different this year... but the message of good news and hope for everyone remains the same.

Here's what's happening at St James.

Carols NOT at the Castle

COVID may have stopped us gathering physically together with Christians across the town this year, but a virtual celebration still goes on. With local artists such as Ella Shaw, and a highly original Zoom Nativity, this will be a lot of fun!

Watch the Premier at 6pm on Saturday 19th December.

Online Carol Service

Our Christmas Carol service is online this year. Come and celebrate the joy of Christmas with us.

6pm on Sunday 20th December. 

The Doorstep Christingle

Our Doorstep Christingle takes place on Christmas Eve. Tune in to the online service at 3.30pm and then stand on your doorstep at 4.00pm to light your Christingle and sing 'Silent Night.'

All children in Clitheroe Primary Schools will receive a Christingle Kit, allowing them to make their Christingle at home. ​
