What is Christmas? What is Christmas?

Does Christmas hit you like a snowball on the back of your neck or with the heart-lifting ‘star of wonder’ shining ahead? It might depend upon where you start.

At Portswood Church we want to start Christmas with Christ. At the heart of it is the amazing news of Jesus coming into our world, bringing God near to us with hope, joy and the possibility of change.

We’d love you to join us as we celebrate. All the activities will be in our building on Portswood Road opposite the Waitrose car park.
