The Candlelit Carol Service at St. Peter's Church, Monkton Farleigh was very well attended. The Reindeer were at the door to welcome people, many of whom came early to be sure of a seat!
|A welcome from the reindeer ...|

|A lovely occasion|
On Christmas Eve there was a Crib Service led by Pat Ellis, which involved the children creating the story of Christmas, as one by one they brought the figures to the stable.
Finally they gathered round the stable, holding their lanterns, singing 'Away in a Manger'.
