Christmas Eve in Old Buckenham

Candlelit service raised money for the homeless

A large congregation gathered on Christmas Eve in All Saints Church, Old Buckenham for the popular annual service of Lessons and Carols .
The soloist for the first verse of Once in Royal David’s City was year 7 student from the High School, Dylan Irving. The readings were given by representatives of the Old Buckenham 2000 Trust, the High School, the Methodist Chapel, the Village Hall Management Committee and the New Life Church. The Christmas message was delivered by Rev Alistair Monkhouse and the organists were Sarah Dye and Annette Ellis - Annette's tuba was also much appreciated. Other contributions to the service were from the Primary School, the Scout Group and Steve Bennett who sang the gospel-influenced song “People Get Ready”. A collection of £545 was taken at the service for the work of St Martin’s Housing Trust (Norwich Night Shelter).
