|December has arrived and so you have a right to expect of your church an array of sparkling and uplifting events to lead us all into our Chris-mas celebrations. We will be given, I am sure, exactly that. But, writing this article I am unsure exactly how they will all come about. The reason is that a problem has revealed itself with the plaster on the inside front wall of the church; the one which has the wonderful arch leading onto the Altar. Currently the church is in total disarray, with scaffolding at the front and a lot of furniture piled at the back. A large area of plaster has had to be removed, which has created a lot of dust. So our focus has been on restoring the church to working order, rather than planning special services for December. What I would have wanted to be a slick presentation of some carefully crafted events, will be much more ‘seat of the pants’.
Should we be upset? Have we let ourselves down?
That being the case, we hope to have:
Candles of Advent: a service for all the family on Sunday 2nd December at 4:30pm.
Advent Carol Service with Brass Band, Mince Pies and Mulled Wine: on Sunday 9th December at 7pm.
Carols in the Club: Thursday 20th December in the Village Club at 8pm.
Midnight Mass: Monday 24th December at 11:30pm.
There will be no service in church on Christmas morning.
May God bless us all this Christmas with peace and joy.

Thank you to everyone for coming along both to sing and do all the technical stuff. We have had a lot of fun throughout the year and I have thoroughly enjoyed singing along with everyone
