What a super Christmas we enjoyed at St Mary’s! Attendances were generally up and we have received very positive feedback from those who came to the five services of Christmas (Lessons and Carols, The Crib Service, The First Communion of Christmas, BCP on Christmas Morning and the Christmas Morning Family Communion). The Lessons and Carols service was sublime (thank you choir, choristers, organists and readers). The Crib Service proved ever more popular and if we continue growing at this rate we may soon have to have two services. Dennis’ sermon at midnight on Christmas Eve was very challenging and thought provoking and I recovered quickly from serving coffees on Christmas morning. Many people worked very hard to make sure Christmas at St Mary’s was special – thank you to all!
