Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols

What a wonderful evening!  The church was almost full, it was beautifully decorated inside and illuminated outside.

The Roseland Churches Choir did four well rehearsed songs, while the congregation sang along to the well known Carols.  The first eight lessons were read by parishioners, with the final one being read by Canon Doug Robins.

At the end of the service everyone was invited to have a hot drink, mince pie or biscuit, which many did combining it with a chat.  The hot drink was most welcome as the temperature outside had dropped considerably and it was pretty cold inside as well.

A big thank you to those that helped decorate and clean the church, many people commented on how good it looked.

Thank you to everyone who attended and we look forward to seeing you next year.
