A Celebration of Christmas

So as 2020 draws to a close, the final installation this year in the Porty Light Box is a Celebration of Christmas.

The local churches have been thinking about ways to celebrate Advent and Christmas in the community this year when it is most likely that the usual Christmas Eve services won’t be possible as we have known them in the past.

Currently, some Churches can only hold between 25-35 people at a time with social distancing, so Christmas Eve services will look quite different for many.  

This Celebration of Christmas is a collaboration between the churches of Portobello – the Baptist Church, St. Mark’s Scottish Episcopal church, St. John’s Roman Catholic church, and Portobello & Joppa church.  

The display includes photos of Advent and Christmas from previous years, and it is hoped to remind people in the community of that which many have experienced in normal circumstances and thus help to mark and celebrate this Christmas.

Merry Christmas and God’s blessing to you all – of all faiths and none. 

All churches have services throughout the Christmas period. See their websites for more information:
