December 23, 2017

Eve of Christingle and Torchlight Service
At St Helen’s Church a team of people helped to make the Christingles for the Christmas Eve service at 4:30 pm.
Eve of Christingle and Torchlight Service
At Trinity we had a rehearsal for the Torchlight Service, also at 4:30pm on Christmas Eve. This year an apprentice astronomer spots a new star in the sky that the older astronomers (wise men) cannot explain. It leads to a stable in Bethlehem and some unexpected happenings.

    Happy Christmas to one and all.

    Did anyone watch Alternativity on BBC2 earlier this week? A brilliant nativity play from the West Bank sponsored by Banksy and co-directed by Danny Boyle.

    It is one sure way to stop Christmas becoming self-indulgent and can be caught on I-Player.
