Christmas in Braunston

I hope you’ve all had a joyful and festive Christmas and are also rested enough to step forward into the New Year.

Christmas in Braunston began with our Carols by Candlelight. The church looked beautiful lit by candles and Christmas tree lights. Thank you to all who made the church look so lovely, the readers and everyone who came to join us.

Journey to Jesus on Christmas Eve was truly blessed by the weather, not only did Storm Barbara pass us by but the chilly wind dropped just in time enabling our Travelling Nativity to proceed as planned. Thanks to all the hard work of everyone involved, it was a great success. As usual, the play began in church where there was standing room only, which proved quite a challenge for the kings to make their entrance! We’ve always had a good crowd but none quite as large as this year. Tiny baby Amelia, only 7 weeks old, was the sweetest Baby Jesus sleeping peacefully through it a11.

We were delighted to welcome so many visitors to our Christmas morning celebration of Communion by Extension.

Happy New Year!
