Welcome to St John the Baptist, Crowthorne
While most people are busy putting up decorations during December, the Church Of England takes its time. The Church is dressed in purple and their are no flowers. This is the period of Advent, when we prepare for the coming of Jesus.
We make up for this by continuing to celebrate Christmastide long after people have taken down their decorations at home. In fact we continue until Candlemass on 2nd February. So, on 7th January we celebrate the coming of the kings on Epiphany - they are absent from our crib until then. We will also distribute Christingles at this service. Children are very welcome to join us for our Messy Christingle on Saturday 6th when we will prepare for this. On January 28th we celebrate the Presentation of Christ in the temple.
