Today, some 45 people enjoyed the final carol service in our Step into Christmas series as we looked at the subject Christmas: The Purpose.
The service was once again hosted by Phil Bray and began with the carol Hark the herald angels sing followed by prayer.
The second carol was Away in a manger and was followed by the final installment of the Christmas Quiz which ultimately ended in victory for the Mince Pies.
The third carol was Infant Holy, infant lowly and was followed by playing the two video clips below:
Our fourth carol was O come all ye faithful and after this, Paul Cogger came up to speak.
Paul used examples of different activities which keep us busy over Christmas, as below, before gradually fading out the pictures to leave the cross as the real purpose of Christmas.
Paul closed in prayer before our final carol which was I cannot tell why He, whom angels worship.
As in previous weeks, we followed the service with hot drinks and mince pies.
Our next carol service is Carols by Candlelight on Christmas Eve.
