We are thrilled to be able to welcome you to our Christmas Eve Service this coming Sunday!

Whether you come regularly to The Oakwood Centre, or are brand new, everyone is really very welcome, as we join together to Celebrate Christmas.

Here is all the info, so that you know what to expect!

The Service

Our service will begin at 10.30am and will be hosted by Matt and Anna Biddlecombe, who are part of our Church Leadership team. This will be an all age service and we encourage you to bring your children – they will be made very welcome and can dress up as a Nativity character and take part in our service if they wish.

Throughout the service, we will sing a number of well known carols together, as well as praying together and hearing from scripture. In order to engage all ages, the service will be structured in short interactive sections that will help us to reflect on the Nativity Story together.

Our service will be relaxed and everybody is free to stand or sit as they wish and to join in as they feel able.

After the Service

The service will finish at 11.45am and then we invite you to join us for refreshments, which will be served free of charge in our foyer.

Everybody is invited to stay!

If this is your first visit, make sure you drop by our welcome hub to grab a welcome pack – we would love to say hi!

Frequently Asked Questions…

Where is the service held?

Tees Valley Community Church is based at The Oakwood Centre, which is just inside the Durham Lane industrial Estate in Eaglescliffe.  If this is your first time visiting us, click here for more info on how to find us and car parking etc.

Will the service be live streamed?

Yes, our service will also be streamed online via YouTube and Facebook for those who are not able to join us in person. Streaming takes place from fixed cameras that are focussed on the stage, though those in the middle section may occasionally be in view. If you have any questions about this, please ask one of the stewards on arrival.

Do you take a collection?

At Christmas we like to provide the opportunity for people to give to a Charity that we support, if they wish. This year our Christmas Appeal will go directly to someone our friends in Ukraine who continue to be on the ground, supporting people through the continuing war.

If you would like to give towards this, you can bring cash, give online or at our card machine (which is located in the main foyer).
