ADVENT CAROL SERVICE – DUDDINGTON SUNDAY 2ND DECEMBER

ADVENT CAROL SERVICE – DUDDINGTON SUNDAY 2ND DECEMBER

The church at Duddington started in total darkness and then a trumpet fanfare
and the theme music from ‘Godspell’ ….
Prepare ye the way of the Lord’
A spot light from the back created shadows as about 10 children danced up the aisle.
The darkness returned as a soloist sang and The Benefice choir processed up to the front,
lighting the congregation’s candles as they went.
Advent carols and prayers continued by candlelight,
concluding with a South African song (complete with tambourines and maracas) to welcome the light!
Afterwards we were entertained with mulled wine and mince pies.
