Our annual Christmas Carol Service with Sound & Light was held on Christmas Eve 24th December 2017 at St. Bartholomew's Church, Church Minshull.
It was a wonderful traditional Service of Lessons and Carols with inspirational Music and amazing Lighting effects.
Thanks to John Headon director with PJ Jones and Bob Schiller on light and sound. Ruth Edge on the organ lead the packed congregation in the singing of Carols.
Well done to all the readers who were superb and thanks to our vicar Rev. Anne Lawson for the prayers and beautiful blessing.
It was a truly Meaningful and Moving Celebration of Christmas.
