Sunday 23rd December at 4pm Village
Carol Service at St Martin’s Church

Following a hearty festive lunch this is a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in
the true meaning of Christmas and to sing your favourite carols whilst being
reminded of the Nativity Story, and so close to Christmas Day this year
too.  This simple service is very popular with villagers and consists of
just Carols, readings and nothing else.  There are six very short readings
and we would love to hear from people who would like to get into the spirit and
read for us all, no qualifications necessary, just enthusiasm, if you fancy
having a go contact Bruce for more details.
