A Place to be Real Together

Christmas in Community

All ages gather for a Christmas with less 'stuff' but more heart


Saturday 23rd - Wednesday 27th December 2023


Last minute spaces available for anyone of any age - please do sign up if you'd like to join us!


Christmas at Othona is always rather special, with less of the things you want less of (television, bingeing, bickering, maybe loneliness?) and more of a spirit of peace and goodwill within a temporary ‘family’ that isn’t your own but where you have a real contribution to make. Everyone can get involved in decorating the house, helping prepare food, plan games or whatever. 

Feasting, presents, prayers – all are in the mix, but none to excess. 

On Christmas Eve we can visit a local organic farm for carol singing in the open air. On Boxing Day if weather permits we stretch our legs and watch hardy souls take a chilly dip in a local harbour for charity (or even join them). 

Equally suited to families, couples or individuals.

With a bargain offer for families with two or more children 3-18
