Lantern Walk 2018

From 6pm, we will be decorating lanterns, ready for our walk. (You can also make Lanterns at Messy Church on Sunday 16th December at Stroat Church)

There will be a chance to get a hot drink and mince pie.

Then…we will be singing traditional carols as we walk with through the village, accompanied by our talented muscians!

We will be finishing our walk at The Rising Sun, where further refreshments will be available, after all that singing!

We’re looking forward to a magical beginning to the Christmas weekend, full of wonder for God’s greatest gift to us.

We hope you will join us celebrating the truth about Christmas.
