We are looking forward to celebrating Christmas at Sunnyside and to welcoming you to some or all of our special services. In order to keep everyone safe this Christmas we are holding a mix of online and in person services which will be ticketed to enable us to plan and ensure that numbers in church do not exceed what is safe for all. All the information and links you need to take part in our services and book tickets will be on this page which will be updated regularly. Some of the links are not ready quite yet but will be added as soon as possible. Plans may need to change if Government advice changes. If you have any queries, please contact the Church Office.

It is now a legal requirement to wear a mask in places of worship unless you are exempt. Please help keep everyone safe by wearing your mask when you come to Sunnyside Church, thank you.

You are very welcome to join us at any of these events!
