Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from all at Seal Church.
Thank you to all who worked so hard to make our Christmas celebrations so good - flower arrangers, Dan Eaton and the Choir, servers and sidespeople.

The story I told on Christmas Day and the sermon from the Midnight service can be found on our website (link on home page).

Matins - 21st Dec

MATINS on 21st Dec will be a said service as the choir and organist will have a very busy day preparing for the carol service in the evening.


Six “taster” training sessions are being organised by Church in Society (Thursdays 12-2pm in Maidstone, from Jan 15 – Feb 19). The course costs £30 in total. I have application forms or you can email Mary Bucknall or phone 01622 755014 if you’re interested.


We are getting rid of the ex-restaurant chairs from the church hall (non-stacking, slightly padded, wooden chairs) as we acquired (free!) some new (to us) stacking chairs during the summer, which will take up less room in the hall. The old chairs are in reasonable repair, but showing their age. If anyone would like any of them, please say so – whatever is left over after Christmas will be taken to the tip!

Advent service - thanks for your support

Last week’s UNITED ADVENT SERVICE raised £184.15 which will be given to the Diocese’s Harare appeal which supports the people of Zimbabwe, via our link Diocese in that country. Thank you to all who took part and especially to Dan and the choir for all their hard work.

These candlelit, quiet communion services will take place at 8 pm in the Lady Chapel on Thurs 4, 11, and 18 Dec. Lots of silence, a little gentle music and a short talk – all welcome! The theme for the three weeks will be the other nativity - the birth of John the Baptist. Each week's short talk will be posted on the church website after the service.
