Candle-lit Carols at St Mary’s today cancelled

A Message from our Rector, Christoph Lindner:

When we were planning our Advent and Christmas services we decided to put a lot of energy into our online offering as services in our church building might not be possible by the time Christmas arrives. While tier-4 rules do allow church services, it became clear very quickly yesterday that we would not have the required team to do a candle-lit carol justice. Sadly, we are therefore cancelling our candle-lit carol service at St Mary’s.
Our online community carol service today at 4pm will be fantastic! So many contributions from around our community and from some special guests, and we filmed it all in a candle-lit St Mary’s church over the course of the last week –  the opening sequence will take us into our beautiful church – virtually.
Christmas is not cancelled, although it will look different.
