St Michael and All Angels Church
Bath Road
London, W4 1TT


24th Dec 2021
4:00 pm - 4:40 pm

At 4pm we hold our Children’s Crib Service, a telling of the Nativity in 40 minutes, with the well-known carols. Children are encouraged to dress up as angels, shepherds and kings. Please do not attend if you have COVID symptoms and observe the COVID rules – see notices in church and online.

Christ’s Crib is the central focus of the Children’s Service that is held at 4pm on Christmas Eve. For many people in Chiswick, this is the real start of Christmas! In normal times, we have had a congregation of more than 700 – including youngsters (many dressed magnificently as angels, shepherds or kings), parents, visitors and friends – as we tell the Nativity story. The service lasts just 40 minutes and is a proper Christmas service – not a carol concert – with readings by members of our Children’s Church and two verses of each of the best-known carols.

Do get there early, because the church gets packed. We don’t allow people to stand in the aisles, because they would block the view of those sitting in the pews, and buggies must be left in the porch. But lots of people stand at the back of the church – and the front three rows of seats are reserved for children.
