A great big welcome to our 2020 ‘Virtual’ Beer & Carols. We can’t celebrate together in person this year, but we can still have a lot of fun and raise some money for a very deserving cause at the same time.
You’ll have to provide your own drinks, but we are creating a Beer & Carols video with all of your favourite carols to sing along to, introduced by Rev’d Will Gibbs and accompanied by David Beaman on keyboard.
The carols have been recorded by St Mary’s own virtual choir and congregation, and there are even a few solos here and there – look out for some familiar faces!
Preparations are underway for our online Advent Carol Service and Christmas services. But we need your help!
To accompany the beautiful carols and anthems sung by our virtual choir, we would love to feature lots of photographs and videos of people from around the village making their preparations for Christmas.
Do you have any photos or videos which you could share with us, for example:
Stirring your Christmas pudding
Putting up and decorating your Christmas tree
Your nativity set / crib
Switching on Christmas lights
Or any other Christmas preparations you could share with us?
Your photos or videos don’t necessarily have to be from this year, if you haven’t started getting ready just yet!
Please note that by submitting a photo or video you are giving permission for it to be used in a St Mary’s online service broadcast on YouTube, and excerpts may be shown on our website and social media too.
Please let us have your photos as soon as possible, (by 23rd November for use in the Advent Carol Service, and no later than 14th December for use in our Christmas services).
