Carols by Candlelight
Date(s) - 22/12/2019

St Thomas' Church
The ‘Carols by Candlelight’ is a traditional service of nine lessons and carols. In St Philip and St James’ Church, we place lots of candles in the windows and around the sanctuary, and for the Carols by Candlelight, we light all the candles, and each person is also given a candle, so our carols are by candlelight! It is a very special service with a fantastic atmosphere as we hear the story of Christ unfold and sing much-loved and well-known carols. The service alternates year-about between St Thomas’ Church and St Philip and St James’ Church and this year is being held in St Thomas’ Church.
Afterwards, everyone is invited to mulled wine – with a non-alcoholic mulled wine option so you can drive home – and mince pies, in theMonk Gibbon Hall (St Thomas’ Parish Hall), in the grounds of St Thomas’ Church. As with all our services, all are welcome.
