CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE.

The Christmas Eve service took place on the afternoon of Christmas Eve and was well attended. The service began with lighting of the Advent Candles by Pam Uden and her family.
Our organist was David Uden and the service led by Revd John Potter was a joyful occasion with familiar carols and readings.
A time for reflection with Pauline Potter reading A Tale for Late Christmas Shoppers. A the end of the service mulled wine and shortbread were served giving an opportunity to wish each other a very Happy Christmas before returning home for final Christmas Day preparations.

CAROL SERVICE

It was a full church on 18th December for our Carol Service when we joined with friends and family, members of Trinity URC and representatives of the groups who regularly use our premises. It was lovely to see some of our Church members who have been unable to attend our services during the past year.

Well known carols were sung with gusto and many thanks to Pru Goldsmith who was our organist that morning. The readers were George Gray (Property & Finance); Paul Rendell (Operations Manager- Street Presence); Jonathan Price (Hope into Action- Church & Tenant Empowerment Worker); Hazel Martin (Church Life Committee); Rosamund Walwyn (Church Member); James Kearns (Chief Executive BUILD) and Helen Read (Church Secretary).

There were thought provoking reflections from “Mary” and “Joseph” read by Judith Foster and John Potter. And an interesting reflection on the carol Silent Night – well, can the birth of a baby really be silent???
The morning ended with coffee, mince pies and a chance to chat to all our members and visitors.

Many thanks to Rev’d John Potter for joyful, thoughtful readings and carols.
