Things are different this year and sadly it doesn’t look as though the local churches will be able to hold carol services in their traditional form. However, the J22 benefice churches (Markfield, Thornton, Stanton-under-Bardon, Bagworth and Copt Oak) have had an idea to brighten up our villages and bring a smile to peoples’ faces as they take their daily exercise.
The idea is simple – in the run up to Christmas we would like as many people as possible to decorate a window in their house in the theme of a Christmas Carol. Then as people walk by, they can look out for the decorated windows and guess the carols, maybe singing a few verses to help them on their way.
So start thinking and planning! You could have a theme for your road – for example – The Twelve Days of Christmas – and maybe even vote for your favourite.
However you decide to do it, let’s bring some extra happiness and community spirit to the village this Christmas!
We will be holding an online Carol service and an online Christingle Service – so watch out for details nearer the time!
