It's That Time of Year!

 We're waiting, with excitement, for Christmas – the reminder that God came as a baby to Bethlehem, to live among us and to die on Good Friday. So, this becomes a season of Carol Services. The Parkinsons Society, who use our buildings to hold their meetings have already had their service. Then, last Thursday, the Coffee Pot group held theirs. It was led by our vicar, Steve Bailey, and Kate Potter kindly played the organ for the carols.
After a light-hearted retelling of the Christmas story, using some horrendous puns relating to the names of sweets, Steve reminded us of the importance of Christ's coming to Earth in order to die for our sins.
Between every two rows of chairs, there had been a table decorated for Christmas. At the end of the service, one of the two rows was turned round so that we could meet around the table for coffee and mince pies.
The church's Main Carol Service (by candlelight) will be at 7 PM on Sunday 19 December. Everyone is very welcome.
