Sunday’s Carol Service

The wet and gloomy weather did nothing to deter the 66 hardy souls who attended the ‘Worship and Carols’ Service in the Church grounds on Sunday.  The service held by Sarah Wyman, aided and abetted by villagers and local children, included an updated version of the story of the Nativity, this time set in 2020 with the Magi bringing gifts of PPE, pasta and loo paper instead of the more traditional Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh 😊.

There were also Christmas carols to sing along to plus prayers and readings.  The church grounds looked magnificent with a gloriously lit-up Christmas Tree, fire pits to keep everyone toasty and candles placed along the walls, casting a warm and festive glow.

Well done to Sarah and the team for bringing some Christmas cheer to the village in what has been a truly horrendous year. Fingers crossed that this time next year we will be able to enjoy a more ‘normal’ Christmas (although the outside Carol Service may be a keeper 😊)
