We love Christmas at Gold Hill! For us, it is a brilliant time of celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ for us all. We have lots of different things going on during this season, and would love you to join us for as many as you would like! This page gives simple details for all that’s happening, and then you can click through for more information.

Choose a Carols Event!

We have a few different kinds of Carols this year, so pick which one you like the look of and come and join us!

Traditional Carols – 17th December, 7pm

All of your favourite carols, led in a traditional way, alongside readings and a short talk. There will be some performed pieces, as well as plenty of chances for us all to join in and belt out some carols together! Followed by minced pies and mulled wine.

Christmas Live Lounge – 22nd December, 7:30–9:30pm

Some carols and some Christmas hits, all performed by a great function band. A chilled and relaxed environment around tables, so come with friends for a great evening. For drinks, it’s BYOB (bring your own bottle), and snacks will be provided. Booking is required, and you can book here.

Outside/Inside Carols – 24th December, 8pm

On Christmas Eve, we will get together outside our new Hub building in the entranceway to sing some carols and enjoy some hot drinks together, before heading home to finish the wrapping. If the weather is bad (or we’re getting too cold!) we can of course move into the foyer to warm up.

As well as these Carol Services, we have a number of other services, events and opportunities to celebrate. What will you join in with?

Village Fun Night – 3rd December, 6–8:30pm

Every year, the high street in our village gets taken over by stalls, rides and people there to celebrate. There is food and drink, local businesses on display, singers performing and fairground rides to enjoy. We always get involved, and this year we can do that even better in our new location in the centre of the village. So come and join everyone for a great evening!

White Christmas Service – 5th December, 3pm

This is a simple service for anybody who is suffering the loss of bereavement. Whether it is a recent loss, or one you have lived with for years, we know that this time of year can be a difficult time as you remember those you can no longer celebrate with. The service includes songs, readings, a moment to remember, and an encouraging and hope-filled talk. We would be really glad to welcome you, or for you to bring someone along who it might benefit. More details here.

Children’s Activity Packs

We do not have our normal ‘Christmas Unwrapped’ holiday club this year, but we do have things for you to enjoy and do at home! We encourage everyone who has children to get a pack, which has crafts, stories and activities in it, and to get one to give away to someone they know, too. We will let you know here how to get your hands on them when they are ready.

Youth Christmas Party – 18th December, 7–9pm

This is a chance for young people (ages 11–18) to come and finish the year in style. Inflatables, a mocktail bar, music, food, games and a dance floor, this will be a brilliant evening. So get dressed up and come along! You’ll need to sign up ahead of time, so check back here to see when sign up is available.

Family Cinema Afternoon – 23rd December, times TBC

The week leading up to Christmas can be very busy, and there can be lots of excitement, but we also know a chance to chill and relax can be essential! So join us for an afternoon, where a Christmas film will be shown, there will be snacks and drinks, and you can enjoy some time with other families in a relaxed environment.

Christmas Day Service – 25th December, 10am

A lively and fun service on Christmas Day with songs, laughter, challenges, and a chance to focus ourselves on what this time of year is all about. In the midst of a busy Christmas Day, this is a chance to come, take a bit of a breather and celebrate with others. The service will also be live-streamed.

Boxing Day Walk – 26th December, 2pm

Boxing Day is a Sunday this year, and instead of a normal service, we will gather together in Chalfont St Giles (on the village green), walk through the countryside to our Hub building where we can enjoy a hot drink, sing a carol or two, and then walk back. If you want to join just for the get-together and miss the walk, that’s totally fine too!
