Christmas Eve

Wednesday 24th December 2014
A few of the hundred people who gathered for carols round the Christmas Tree on the Millennium Green at Otterburn....eating mince pies afterwards under the crescent  moon.

Meanwhile, at St Cuthbert's Bellingham the Christingles await the evening congregation of another hundred or so worshippers who packed the church.
     After that service I had two or three hours at the rectory to complete preparations for Midnight Mass, which was attended by about thirty people.  Other services were conducted by my colleagues  at Woodburn, Falstone and Elsdon, not to mention at the Roman Catholic and Methodist/United Reformed churches  --  and Christmas Day is yet to come.
