Our Christmas vacation events are listed below.  There are links to our carol service along with thoughts, reflections and meditation.  We also have Chaplaincy At Home which is a series of online meet ups, during the Christmas vacation, hosted from the home of one of the Chaplaincy team. Join online, bring a hot drink, and get ready for some informal social conversation and company during the quiet times of the vacation.

All our events listed here are available for playback from the date shown and afterwards.  The length of the video is shown in brackets.  More activities during the vacation period can be found at Global Campus and Christmas support and things to do.
