Christmas messages from our Bishops

It was a different Christmas for many, and many churches, this year. 

This year some of our Christmas services have looked a little different as we all continue to face the COVID-19 pandemic. Bishop Steven and Bishop Alan have both sadly been unable to attend and preside at Christmas services this year due to falling ill.

However, the Bishop of Dorchester, the Rt Revd Gavin Collins has shared a Christmas message reflecting on his first year as the Bishop of Dorchester and a look ahead to 2022.
