Parish Celebration of Carols 2017
This year the intention was to include the With You Alawys children more in the service. This was achieved wonderfully. Some of the children read reflections after the readings whilst others took part in a Nativity Tableau They shook their precussion instruments to 'It was on a starry night' and led us in a rendition of the calypso Carol. Thank you to all those who helped them prepare for the night and supported them on the evening.
Allerton Brass were as usual on great form, with pre and post service music, as well as the Little Drummer boy and Joy to the World during the Service.
Below is a slide show recording the evening.
The combined talents of the music groups from 10am and 6pm Masses (plus a couple of guests) provided us with beautiful music. Highlights included a rendition of Born on a New Day, and an instrumental version of Oh Holy Night
Fr. Tim thanked all those who took part and gave a Christmas blessing, which was followed by Allerton Brass playing some rousing music as the congregatipn headed to the Fisher-More Hall for mince pies and mulled wine
