Following the Inverness Christmas Lights Switch on on Sunday 17 November, Santa will be making his way to the Old High Church for “Ding Dong Merrily Old High” our much loved Christmas Carol service- everybody is invited.
Ding Dong Merrily Old High starts around 6.30pm. It’s a short service aimed at families, so children of all ages are very welcome! This year Out of the Box puppets will be telling the Christmas story in their own inimitable way!
There will be an offering in aid of music therapy at The Orchard, a residential respite care centre in Inverness, run by Highland Council, for children and young people affected by disabilities.
The 2013 Christmas Lights Show will be hosted by STV’s Nicola McAlly and Santa will join Provost Alex Graham to switch on the lights at 6pm on Sunday 17 November.
The wonderful illumination of Inverness Town House by Arts in Motion promises to be one best yet, so please make a note to wrap up warm and come and join us.

Christmas Eve Watchnight Service, 2012
Text: Matthew 2.1-23
In the name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.
There are people who think that Christmas is a time for children. After all, they say, there’s a baby at the centre of the story. But tonight, as we heard all of Matthew’s version of the story, did you notice how many grown-ups appear? A child might be at the centre of the story, but it’s a story mostly about the doings of grown-ups.
Our reading begins, ‘Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem in Judea, during the time when Herod was king’. And so the first grown-up we meet is Herod
We watched this video of a Nativity from New Zealand at St Stephen’s today.
Joseph finds a new way for Mary to get to Bethlehem!
Many thanks for St Paul’s Church, Auckland, for this summertime nativity!
