Readings and Carols with Sound and Light – Christmas Eve, 2021.
The traditional service of Bible readings of Christ’s birth, punctuated with carols, was well attended. Sue and Richard Ellison sang during the service, accompanied by Joy Naylor on keyboard and Ruth Edge played the organ for the carols sung by the congregation. Brian Charlesworth, Andrew Guy, SImon and Celia Reynolds, Marion Allen, Kerry Bannon, David Barrett and the Rev. Lesley Bentley read the lessons and the Rev Anne gave the bidding prayer, Lord’s Prayer and Blessing. Coloured lighting effects illuminated the church throughout, thanks to John Headon, PJ Jones and Bob Schiller. Two videos were also shown on the big screen, of the angel appearing to the shepherds and at the finale, when a version of ‘Mary Did You Know?’ was shown. We thank all those who participated for their contributions and all who attended on the night to celebrate the birth of Christ.
