Barrowden Carol and Crib Service – December 17th 2017

Barrowden Carol and Crib Service – December 17th 2017

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.

Advent Sunday Service Morcott 3rd December

Everyone is very welcome to Morcott’s Advent Service on 3 December 2017, in St Mary’s Church, starting at 4pm.

Before Christmas comes the season of Advent – a word derived from the latin ‘to come’. The service explores the themes of dark and light, and of waiting and hoping for what is to come through readings including RS Thomas and TS Eliot, and with Advent hymns.

Mulled wine and mince pies after!

Duddington Remembrance Service 12th November 2017

Duddington Remembrance Service 12th November 2017

Duddington Remembrance Service   12th November 2017 

St Mary’s held a most successful remembrance service for Tixover and Duddington, led in an excellent manner by Rev Peter Jupp.

The congregation of over 30 were especially pleased to be accompanied by Duncan Mc  Irae  on the church organ .  Wreaths were laid on the altar by Evie Holder (9) and Tilly Maunder (6) and the Church Wardens.

These were later collected and taken to the war memorial.

We very grateful to Duncan’s son  Rhairi ,who travelled down from Leeds University to play the last post and National Anthem at the Memorial,  following the laying of wreaths from the Parish Council and the Church. After the service everyone returned to the warmth of the Church to enjoy Mulled Wine and mince pies.
