Coffee, Craft & Carols – Methodist Update

Carol - Away in a Manger

Carols were sung including Away in a MangerCoffee, Craft & Carols

The Methodist Church & friends enjoyed Coffee, Craft & Carols last Friday.  Twenty-eight children with their parents/grandparent came to their afternoon Coffee & Craft morning. The six tables, each with a different Christmas craft, were enjoyed as were the refreshments & snacks. The morning closed with reading the traditional Christmas story and singing “Away in a Manger”.

Carols at the Coop

That evening 14 singers came to enjoy Carol Singing outside the Co-op.  They were fortunate that the rain cleared and so enjoyed a largely dry, if somewhat cold, evening. The hot drinks and warm mince pies afterwards were certainly welcome. The singers entertained the shoppers for 90-minutes of traditional Christmas carols.

The church was grateful to the Co-op for letting them sing there, also to the singers and to the shoppers who contributed to the £22.95 raised for Action for Children.
