It was cold… and it was windy… but much fun was had by All!

Upper Room Christmas carol Service 2013 - 12

Members from the Church began the Christmas outreach early in the morning by setting up and running the usual Saturday market brew station. Here market traders and passers by are offered free drinks, biscuits and the offer of a chat and a quick prayer.

After lunch others arrived and we prepared for our outdoor Carol service. Songsheets were distributed, children were gathered and all sang with gusto to share the good news of Christmas, and to keep warm.

Here is a list of the carols and the readings that we used. If you click on the scriptures you will go to a bible link…
