Christmas lights are going up all round the village and it seems people are decorating for Christmas! How are your ‘Christmas carol’ windows going?
I posted a couple of week ago that the J22 benefice churches (Markfield, Thornton, Stanton-under-Bardon, Bagworth and Copt Oak) had an idea to brighten up our villages with a simple and fun idea – that as many people as possible 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.
I have heard that a few have already been done in Markfield – have we any yet in Thornton?
The benefice will be having an online Carol service on Sunday 20th at 4pm and an online Christingle Service at 4pm on Christmas Eve on our Youtube channel. They can be watched at any time after that – to suit your plans.
