Reserve The Date – Friday 15th December at 7pm
This Christmas we are planning a very special ‘Christmas Carols & Light Festival’ for all the village and our friends from surrounding villages. Please reserve the date and come along for a great evening to celebrate Christmas amongst friends.
Come with your Lanterns to Light up the Church
We will light up the exterior of the church with powerful coloured lights from LED lamps and lasers. Lanterns will illuminate the church together with our Christmas tree. We will need as many lanterns as is possible so we ask that you bring along as many candle lit lanterns as you have. Make sure your name is on a label on the base so that we can make sure lanterns are returned to the rightful owners.
We will serve mulled wine on arrival and sing our carols around the tree and celebrate the Christmas story – we are hoping to get a guitarist to accompany the singing together with the organ.
This is a Christmas Carol event for all – so children are especially welcome – so if you have little ones then bring them along.
It is the season of giving and a time when we think about those who are less fortunate. So, please also bring along a wrapped toy which will be put under the tree and distributed to local disadvantaged children.
Following the carol singing, you can expect seasonal finger food all washed down with wine, tea, coffee or soft drinks. We will request a small donation of £5 per adult towards wine but feel free to bring along a bottle or your drink of choice. If you would also like to offer some seasonal food to share then please let Tony Capon or Ann Newborough know as soon as possible.
After the carols we will have background Christmas music and, who knows?, perhaps we will break into more carol singing!
Put the date in your diary- tell your friends and family and bring them along.
