Celebrating Yuletide in Nottingham

Posted by on Dec 20, 2014 in Uncategorized | No Comments

We’re looking forward to an exciting festive assembly tomorrow in Nottingham. On Sunday 21st December – appropriately enough – we will be celebrating Yuletide and all it means to us. It is an added little bonus that the Assembly date falls on the day of the winter solstice itself. From here on in the days will be getting steadily lighter.

The theme we have chosen is ‘Giving and Recieving’. What does it truly mean to give a gift, and to graciously receive? To help us consider the reason for the season, we are delighted to be joined by representatives of HOST Nottingham, a local charity providing essential services for homeless refugees and asylum seekers. The charity will be presenting our talk and also showing a short video about their vital work with disadvantaged people.

As always we have a great set of songs lined up. We’ll be singing our hearts out to classics such as ‘Merry Christmas Everybody’, ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ ‘White Christmas’ and ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ (yes, there is a difference!) We’re also singing ‘The Dawkins Song’, a light hearted tribute to scientific humanism sung to the tune of ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’

This month we are celebrating the first anniversary of the Nottingham Sunday Assembly. So in honour of the occasion we are holding a festive Fellowship Meal directly after the Assembly, in our Canal House venue. I can’t believe how quickly the time has flown, and I am delighted with all we have achieved in our little community.

Come along and help us celebrate ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ this Sunday!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, and a joyous and prosperous New Year
