Local Christmas church services

Rota of Services in the 6 ParishesI can’t believe it’s only 1 month to Christmas & I’ve just received the rota of church services for the Six Parishes which surround Apley Farm Shop. It’s Apley’s Christmas Food Fair 10-4pm, also Advent Sunday when our children adore opening the first window on their Advent calendars.

What struck me last year when standing in one of these services, is that it is just right there, where one really experiences the very essence of Christmas. There’s so much going on around Christmas time, these services really remind us what it’s all about ! The birth of Jesus of course, but it’s also a very special time in the local community, to be shared with family, friends & neighbours.  The churches are always beautifully decorated with holly & candles. At Stockton church, in the past couple of years, church members have put on a little theatrical sketch – light hearted & fun. The Six Parishes choir accompanied by the organ, lead the congregation in carols. Everyone’s always welcome – baptised / confirmed or not !

The Six Parishes include Beckbury, Ryton, Stockton, Kemberton, Sutton Maddock & Badger & the vicar Keith Hodson on 01952 750 774. If these are not local to you, try http://www.achurchnearyou.com.
