Is this invitation too early or too late?
When do you think an invitation to Christmas events should go out? Early enough for people to include it in their plans, but not so early they will have forgotten it by the time of the event? Some people don’t like the way Christmas seems to start earlier every year. After all, the traditional twelve days of Christmas begin on 25th December and end at Epiphany, 6th January. Others like to enjoy the build-up and want it over in time for the January sales. (They’re getting earlier too, I notice).
What does this invitation cover?
Here’s a list of all the Christmas events at St Paul’s Church, Penketh, Warrington, most of which I’ll be attending. I don’t suppose many people will come to all of them, but you are warmly and sincerely invited, whether you live in Penketh or wherever and whether or not you usually include Church things in your Christmas schedule.
Sunday 16th December, Carol Service, 7.00 p.m.
Sunday 23rd December, Holy Communion, 9.00 a.m.
Monday 24th December, Christmas Eve, Crib Service, 6.00 p.m.
Christmas Day, Family Service, 10.30 a.m.
Where? The Oaks Centre, Stocks Lane, Penketh, Warrington, WA5 2QS
