Christmas Carol Service (and after drinks)

Sunday 16th December - 6pm (following the Santa Parade and lantens)

This will be preceded by the lantern lit Santa parade as before (full details in the lantern packs sold door to door by the 'Friends' so please buy yours) which will end at the church in time for the service. We thought it would be nice this year if the younger children could wear Nativity costumes (there are some in the church if they don't have their own). The Benefice curate Rev'd William McDowell will be taking the service - some of you may have already met him at the Peasefest pet service in the Summer.

After the service refreshments will again be served in the barn at Peasemore Manor and all are welcome. There will be mulled wine, tea, coffee and nibbles for grownups and hot chocolate, squash and marshmallows (remembered this year!) to be toasted on the braziers for the children. A nice opportunity for everyone to stop and chat a while before the rush of the week before Christmas starts.
