Carols in a Polytunnel
On 21st December the St Mary's band, enhanced by additional players visited Winterburn Farm for the annual carols and readings. The latter were mostly done by the younger members of the families present who showed the rest of us how to read with clarity and interest while the music was varied and splendid. We all appreciated the sumptuous cake and cheese and the warming mulled drinks provided by our hosts before we stepped back into a wet and blustery night. A big thank you to our hosts, the readers, Yvonne and the musicians for giving us a memorable evening.
FIRE IN THE EARTH
St Mary's Christingle Service 2015
A good congregation attended the Christingle Service at St. Mary’s this morning 20th December. Warm thanks to Liz Roodhouse who gave a talk to fifteen children (and I think enlightened some of the adults in attendance too!) by explaining the meaning of Christingle. “Christ” our Saviour Jesus and “ingle” meaning “a fire in the hearth.” She demonstrated this by showing us that the “orange” represented the “globe” or “world” the red ribbon interpreted the shedding of our Saviour’s blood and the candle the “light” of the world. Thanks go to her for that informative and captivating contribution to the service. After communion everyone was given a Christingle candle to light and we spent a moment of silence contemplating the meaning of this special time of the year.
Additionally thanks go to the band who came for this special service outside of their normal schedule.

God of our salvation,
help us to turn away from those habits
which harm our bodies
and poison our minds
and to choose again your gift of life,
revealed to us in Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
