On the day when we remember the visit of the three kings to Bethlehem to find the baby Jesus, we have some pictures of the Duddington crib. This crib was originally made for the disabled children, when they had a home at Tixover Manor.
The sermon given by Right Rev Christopher Armstrong at Benefice Eucharist, at South Luffenham on 31st December 2017 has been loaded onto the Sermons page at http://wellandfosse.org/wp-content/uploads/Sermon-Benefice-Eucharist-South-Luffenham-31st-Dec-2017.pdf.
On Sunday in the evening a candlelit service was held at Tixover
About 280 candles lit the Church .
Carols were sung, the Crib was prepared and the Christmas readings were listened to.
All in the lovely soft light of the candles.
A Christmas preparation as our forefathers would have remembered
There were lots of mulled wine and Christmas nibbles afterwards for everybody.
South Luffenham held a special Crib Service on Saturday afternoon .
It was lovely to see lots of children , who took part in the service by placing the characters in the crib
and singing carols. We then held a traditional Carol Service on Sunday morning
On Sunday the Church was full for the Barrowden Carol Service.
The crib was ready and the choir and Bellringers ringing.
As the Parishioners arrived children chose the Crib figures to fill the Crib.
The service began with a lovely Introit sung by the Choir.
It continued with carols and readings, during which the figures were placed in the Crib .
Several of the carols had lovely descants from the Choir.
The final Carol was ‘O come all ye faithful’ with Trumpet, Clarinet and Choir accompaniment.
After the service, mince pies and mulled wine were enjoyed by everybody.
Many thanks and congratulations to the choir on their first official Event.
