Christingles 2013 At St Pauls Camberley - Photoblog

This should give you a feel for the atmosphere at this years three Christingle services held at St Paul’s Camberley. 

A great team spent an evening lovingly turning oranges, silver foil and candles into something rather special – a Christingle.

A great community came to find out more about the birth of Jesus.

Beer and Carols at the Bear 2013

Time to get into the full swing of Christmas. If the thought of attending a church this season puts you off, how about popping into Park Street for a festive ‘sing song’ and drinks? If you came to Beer & Hymns at the Bear in March, then you'll have a flavour for what's in store.

The friendly bunch at St Paul’s will start the festive cheer at the Bear pub, 23 Park Street, Camberley GU15 3PQ on Thu 19th Dec from 7:45pm. Come and grab a drink, and join in the fun. They’re a lively bunch, so I’m sure it will be a great night out. Time to let your hair down after all that shopping, wrapping and busy preparations.

Carols by Candlelight – Sunday 15 Dec 2013

Set in a beautiful candle lit church, the retelling of the Christmas story through bible reading, carols and music of a variety of styles blends both the traditional and the modern.  Held on Sunday December 15th at 6pm.

Operation Christmas Child 2013

This year we had a fantastic response from members of St Paul's and Crawley Ridge School to the Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box appeal. One hundred and seventy boxes have been dispatched to give a child a Christmas present this year, and could be heading to any of these countries. St Pauls Shoe Boxes for Operation Christmas Child

One of the organisers, Jacqui Tatley said “WOW, what a fabulous response to our shoebox appeal, 170 boxes collected. BRILLIANT. Thanks to Shirley Powell and Jenny Banks for organizing it all. 170 children will have something to delight in. Praise the Lord.”. Crawley Ridge School joined forces with St Paul’s, resulting in the ‘shoe box mountain’, as Rev Russ coined it on twitter.
