A Hustings will take place on Tuesday 10 December, 8pm at Holy Trinity Church, The Broadway (refreshments available from 7.30pm). Organised by the churches of Wimbledon, this is an opportunity to hear our constituency candidates answer questions on the issues that matter to local voters.

Please click here to submit your question for the candidates. The questions to be asked at this Hustings event will be selected from among those received by Saturday 7 December.

Throughout December our minister Revd Dominic Grant will be producing a series of audio reflections exploring themes from the Advent hymn “O come, O come Emmanuel”.

In the introductory reflection, Dominic talks about the background of the hymn – and about how a little bit of confusion needn’t always be a bad thing.

Part 2 explores Wisdom: what is it, and how do we get hold of it? Dominic ponders insights from Proverbs and Genesis, and visits our next-door school, Wimbledon High School for Girls, to hear from Claire Boyd the Head of the Junior Department.

On Sunday morning, the children will recount the story of the birth of Jesus as they perform their Nativity Play during the Service.

Do come and support them, and join in worship for everybody whatever your age!

As shown at “Carols Among the Trees” on Sunday – 

Happyland Nativity

Rediscover the Christmas story in this stop motion video – where Happyland toys make the nativity come alive!

An angel in a rocket? The wise men arriving on a London bus? It could only be the Happyland Nativity! This Christmas, encounter the nativity in a new way. Speak Life and Hope Together have recreated the nativity scene, a summary of the birth of Jesus, with characters from the Happyland toys nativity set, in a stop motion animation. This short story comes directly from the Bible to tell the true meaning of the Christmas holiday. Follow Mary, Joseph, the angels, the wise men and the sheep, as they travel through a quirky animated adventure about the greatest story ever told – a story to be shared with everyone.
