Are you ready for the festive season?
Perhaps your hall is decked with holly, your tree lights are twinkling, and tinsel hangs in every room. You’re working your way through boxes of mince pies and making preparations for your Christmas dinner. Your diary is filling up with church events and time with your family and friends.
Or maybe you’re not looking forward to this season at all. Perhaps you’re going through a tough situation or have lost someone close to you, and this year, Christmas just doesn’t feel the same.
Whether you’re full of excitement or struggling with the festivities, whether you’re having big family parties or you’ll be on your own, why not tune in and spend Christmas with UCB?
We have something for everyone, from traditional reflections on the biblical Christmas story to our heavy rock themed Christmas special.
Take a look at all the great content that’s coming up over the next few weeks on UCB Radio:
