It's time for carol singing and you can join in any of these opportunities to get into the Christmas spirit and raise funds for Action for Children.
The Girls' Brigade will be hosting their Christmas with carols event on Monday 7th December at 6pm in the church hall.
The Boys' Brigade will be taking to the streets on Wednesday 16th starting from church at 7pm for about an hour and then returning for a warm-up drink and mince pie.
We are booked to sing for about an hour outside Sainsbury's on Monday 21st at 7pm when Father Christmas will be giving out sweets to shoppers and singers — so come along!
