Advent Window Trail

We would like to invite you on An Advent Window Trail. Each day in December a different window in either Ockbrook or Borrowash will reveal a Christmas Carol or Song themed window.

A chocolate will be delivered to the first three children to post a photo on the Advent Trail Facebook Page each day with the new revealed window for the day.

Click the button below for more details and please head over to the Facebook page and join in the fun.

Christmas Worship Playlist

If like many people you are missing singing all the traditional carols and the modern Christmas Songs with us in church, we have created an Advent and Christmas Worship playlist, so please click on the play button below and immerse yourself in the songs.

Please keep checking back as we will be adding more songs to the list

If you want to see more please subscribe to our YouTube channel where we stream our weekly services, which you can watch again. Our special services detailed above will also be streamed via YouTube as well as Facebook.

Giving & Fundraising Options

Churches rely heavily on the generosity of their congregations and communities around them and we in Ockbrook & Borrowash are no exception and are always grateful for any donation whether it be a one-off amount or a more regular amount.

Whilst our buildings have been closed making regular donations has been harder for some people and we hope to be able to accept online donations very soon and will update as soon as this is possible, but in the meantime there are other ways you can help us raise vital funds for the maintenance of our buildings.

EASY FUNDRAISING – by signing up if you have not already done so, and activating donation, whilst shopping online you can raise funds for our churches at no additional cost to yourself.
