The first sprinkle of snow this year


Calary Church will hold its traditional candlelight Carol Service at 7 pm on Wednesday 21 December, which will be followed by mulled wine and mince pies in the Church Room. As usual, it will be an evening of lessons and carols for everyone to enjoy and take part in.  

This year, we will be joined by special guests Adeleh Davis on trumpet, soprano Maria Gorman and our own parish choir. We look forward to welcoming you but, if you can’t make it, we would like to wish you all a blessed and peaceful Christmas.  

Please also keep an eye out for the star which is again on Calary Church tower to lighten the darkness and bring some festive cheer to the Calary area.
