Carol Service 2005 photographs

Once again, our lively annual Carol Service at St. Mark's Church, Flecknoe, proved to be a successful and enjoyable event for everyone. In excess of fifty people made the trip out to St. Mark's, in spite of chilly weather, with many families bringing small children to join in the singing and take home a specially prepared 'Christingle' - a tastily decorated orange, with a central candle representing Jesus as the light of the world. Our grateful thanks, as usual, to those tireless workers who gave up their time to prepare the church so beautifully and to make Christingles for the children.

For those who particularly enjoy singing, don't forget there will be Carol Singing round the village on Tuesday 20th. We will be meeting at Hillcrest House at 6pm. Wrap up warmly!

The children were in fine voice this year for their traditional solo ... after a slightly bumpy start!

'Away in a manger
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down his sweet head'

'Jesus Christ - The Light of the World'

The PCC would like to thank everybody who came to St. Mark's Carol Service; we hope to see you again soon! Just as a final reminder, there will be a Holy Communion service on Christmas Day at 10.30 in the morning. Do please join us for that as well, you are all very welcome. In the New Year, services will start again on Sunday 15th January with Holy Communion at 9am.
