Carols Round the Benefice 2014

All our congregations have been making a joyful sound singing carols. St Peter's (Monkton Farleigh) held their carol service on 14th Dec, while Christ Church (Bradford-on-Avon), St James (South Wraxall) and St. Nicholas (Winsley) all held theirs on 21st Dec.

At Winsley, the church was floodlight outside - a big thank you to Geoff Parker.

At Christ Church the organ was supported by the Music Group - on this occasion 2 flutes, an oboe, a trombone and a bass trombone plus keyboard. In addition to the traditional carols, there was a lovely new carol Like a Candle Flame (follow this link to hear it on YouTube).

Christ Church Friends were also out singing carols round the parish on the 15th and 22nd Dec. This year the singers visited Kingsfield Grange Road, Woolley Terrace, Coronation Avenue, Woolley Drive, Church Acre, Bearfield, and Huntingdon St. Thanks to all who joined in.

Thanks to Daphne Cox for the Winsley photos.
