Beacon Parish Christmas Services

Given the present Covid-19 situation we have decided to make all Christmas services ‘ticket only’ as we cannot allow the standing room only situation of normal years. We are limiting the number of attendants at each service and will unfortunately not be offering the usual mulled wine and mince pies.

Tickets may be purchased for each event using these links:

12th December - Carols by Candlelight - Streat (limited to 50): SOLD OUT

18th December - Carols by Candlelight - Westmeston (limited to 40): SOLD OUT

19th December - Carols by Candlelight - Ditchling (limited to 80): SOLD OUT

24th December - Crib Service - Ditching: Regrettably cancelled

25th December - Christmas Celebration

Streat (limited to 40): https://www.eventcreate.com/e/streatcarols2021

Westmeston (limited to 40): https://www.eventcreate.com/e/westmestonservices

Ditchling (limited to 80): https://www.eventcreate.com/e/ditchlingservices

Parking at Streat will be available in Streat Place courtesy of Francis and Rosamund Baron.

The Jubilee Choir will still perform at Streat Carols by Candlelight and the service will be recorded for subsequent streaming. The details will be on the parish website www.beaconparish.co.uk shortly after the event. Please ignore any reference to the streaming on the ticket website.

Regrettably, the Crib Service at Ditchling on 24 December is cancelled.

All other Beacon Parish Christmas events are still scheduled to continue but are being kept under review, so please check on our website for the latest situation before setting out.

Please note that masks should be worn within the church. Please do not attend the service if you are experiencing a high temperature, continuous cough, loss or change of smell or taste, headache, sore throat or runny nose.
