A festive message from our Chaplaincy team

Our usual Christmas service couldn’t go ahead this year, but we’re delighted to share with you our virtual Christmas service, recorded by our Chaplaincy team. Please watch and share with your loved ones for a small spark of festive joy and reflection.

Chaplaincy video

With an introduction by our Chief Executive, Professor Oliver Shanley OBE, the video also includes carols, reflections and a reading by our Spiritual Care Lead, Paul McNamara. We encourage anyone who may be apart from their family and loved ones this year to watch the video, sing a carol or two, and reflect while listening to Paul read the Christmas story.

The festive period will be different for most of us this year, and many will find it difficult. Please reach out to someone if you’re struggling. The NHS is here if you need us.

We hope you enjoy our virtual Christmas service. Wishing you all a merry Christmas and all the best for the new year.
