Crib Service - Christmas Eve 2012

It was great to welcome so many people to a full church on Christmas Eve this year (2012) for our annual crib service for young children. Many children donned costumes while most of the speaking parts were taken by older members of the congregation (see below, bottom, our Vicar Paul and Churchwarden Carron as kings!)
