Photographs of Morcott’s Advent Window Trail 2020

Morcott’s first Advent Calendar trail was a huge hit in the village, with great support from 23 householders. The final ‘window’ proved to be at St Mary’s church, where the porch was lit up to reveal a Nativity scene. Lots of villagers armed with hot chocolate and mulled wine walked around the village in the late afternoons, especially on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Thanks to all who took part.

Great photos of the windows can be enjoyed in this online gallery on Morcott’s village website https://morcott.wordpress.com/2020/12/31/best-wishes-for-2021-advent-window-photos/

Welland Fosse Online Carol Service 2020

Welland Fosse Online Carol Service 2020

We are delighted to share the Welland Fosse Benefice online Carol Service, featuring all five village churches.

Filmed recently under Covid conditions, it is a 45-minute service of Lessons & Carols featuring eight readers, a socially-distanced choir of four singers and four organists/keyboard players, with Christmas prayers led by Christopher Armstrong.

Our churches were decorated for Christmas and the five video segments have been beautifully edited to create a magical service that you can watch from home.

The video will stay online here until the New Year so that you can watch it at your leisure. 

INSTRUCTIONS All you have to do is make sure your laptop/tablet has its SOUND switched ‘on’ and then click on the ‘play’ arrow in the middle of the picture. To experience it in full, once the video has started playing, click on the ‘full screen’ icon in the bottom right-hand corner.

We are so grateful to everyone who volunteered their time and skills to make this possible. 

Christopher Armstrong and your churchwardens wish you all a very Happy Christmas

Remember that most of our churches also have a real live service on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day: please check out the December Services post elsewhere on the website.
