We are looking forward to celebrating Christmas at Sunnyside and to welcoming you to some or all of our special services. Coronavirus means that our Christmas services will be slightly different this year. In order to keep everyone safe this Christmas we are holding a mix of online and in person services. All the information and links you need to take part in our services will be on this page which will be updated regularly. Plans may need to change if Government advice changes. Masks must be worn in church and we are afraid that there cannot be any congregational singing. If you have any queries, please contact the Church Office.
You are very welcome to join us at any of these events!
Each week familiar characters will be arriving in our lobby window. Why not come and see for yourselves
