At the Heart of Christmas with St Nicholas Church, Saltdean

We have a packed calendar of events lined up for Christmas this year as we make up for the difficulties of the last 18 months. Our celebrations start with the Advent - the four Sundays leading up to Christmas week. This year, Advent begins on Sunday 28th November. For the families we look forward to welcoming you to our St Nicholas celebrations on Sunday 5th; to our Christmas Lunch on December 23rd and to our special Crib service on Christmas Eve. For those who like a traditional celebration then please join us for our Carol Service on Sunday 19th and of course Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. 

However you intend to celebrate Christmas this year, we hope that you will spend some time with us at St Nicholas Chuch - at the Heart of Christmas.
