On Sunday December 20th, 24 of us enjoyed a Service of Lessons and Carols at 11am, led by members of the Cantelina Choir, conducted by Rosemary Kimmins. It was super to meet together, and to hear such lovely singing, on this special occasion.
On Christmas Eve, 48 folk from near and far met on Zoom for Christmas Communion. with about half from our own benefice and the others from further afield - including family and friends from the United States - illustrating the extraordinary power of new media to bring folk together from across the world, and create real sense of community.
On Christmas Day, 22 folk met in a bitterly cold churchyard to receive Christmas Communion in celebration of the birth of Christ.
What splendid occasions, making community in a mix of ways.
