Christmas at Sea

Christmas at Sea - Hearing the Word of God

Saturday 24th November  10am - 3pm

St Peter's Winchester, Jewry Street, SO23 8RY


A day for everyone in the diocese, to prepare for Christmas by hearing and doing the Word of God.


We’ll hear the Word of God in the morning through a Bible Study – ‘Sailing through the Bible’ – looking at Jesus, the Word made flesh and at the place of the sea in the Bible.


We’ll do the Word of God in the afternoon by buying simple Christmas presents for seafarers who will be spending Christmas on ships, far from their family and countries, sometimes in dire circumstances. We’ll wrap these presents and include Bible quotations in the presents, which we’ll hand over to CARITAS for them to deliver to seafarers before Christmas.


Everyone is welcome to join us for this wonderful opportunity to turn to God and to others as we are about to embark on Advent.


Bring a packed lunch and a Bible.
