A good crowd of people turned out sing around the village with several youngsters joining us. the group ended with our usual carol sing along in the Railway public house and a total of £372.51 was raised for Acorns charity.
Our service of candlelit carols was led by Rev Nick Jones and supported by the choir who sang a new version of "Little Donkey" for the congregation as their finale. Lessons and carols were sung and we thank all those who read so ably for us. This year we had new LED flicker candles but still maintained tradition with proper burning candles on the side tables. We even had a special playlet where the Angels in Heaven discussed the coming of Jesus and decided to descend and view proceedings.
Mince pies and festive treats were washed down with tea and coffee afterwards in the school room. Merry Christmas to you all.
Our traditional Nativity display has now gone up for all to see including the passing traffic. The church has also been decorated ready for the Christmas services - please see our home page for times and dates
