Carols with Sound and Light ....

A record turnout of 157, attended the St Bartholomew's 'Service of Lessons and Carols, with Sound and Light'. The largest attendance at the church for over 20 years and what a service they were treated to, as well.
Young children had their eyes filled with wonderment of the changing colours and lighting of the church ceiling, whilst parents and grandparents pointed out the amazing lighted decorations of the tree, the windows and the pillars...all in anticipation of Santa's arrival later on...
Everyone joined in with all the carols which started at The Prelude with 'Once in Royal David's City' and ending with The Gospel Revealed and 'O Come All Ye Faithful'. In between, they heard the lessons from all the readers and listened to the recordings of songs such as, 'Pie Jesu' by Angelis, or 'O Holy Night' by Susan Boyle.
