Christmas in Newcastle

It’s not the same type of Christmas as usual but our Chaplains have put together a Celebration of Christmas in words and music.

Click on the image below to launch our Virtual Christmas Carols in Panopto. Please note, if you are viewing this on a mobile device, Panopto will not let you access the embedded Youtube content for the four carols. 

Come along and share in the Christmas joy.
