Befriending Afternoon for Christmas

This month we treated Befriending Caithness to some seasonal entertainment in the church. The Poltney Bell Ringers rang a selection of Christmas music including some well known carols. The ringers were also joined by P6 from Newton Primary School who sang the Twelve Days of Christmas and We wish you a merry Christmas to name but two. After the most enjoyable short concert the children returned to school and all others adjourned to the hall for the usual delicious afternoon tea. There was a great buzz in the hall and as the tea, coffee, sandwiches and cakes were served there were many kind comments of praise for the singing and ringing. As the afternoon came to a close lots of seasonal greetings were exchanged and all looked forward to meeting up again in January.

Nine Lessons and Carols

A big thanks to Reverend Wendy for all the organising and to Susie Dingle for the Coaching of St Johns Singers for the Nine Lesson and Carols Service at St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church Wick, which was held on Saturday 17th December 2016. To us it was a wonderful afternoon, to share together the most amazing and emotional and uplifting story. Readings from the bible in conjunction with music relevant to the read passages was greatly appreciated and enjoyed by the attending congregation as shown by their generous giving in the donation box and all who had taken an active part in the proceedings. A very welcome afternoon tea with food was served by church members in the church hall following the service, this prepared those in attendance for the Christmas celebrations on 25th. A big thank you to all.
