Candle-lit Service of Carols and Readings to Celebrate Christmas

The Church of the Holy Cross in Caston was lit by candles and was packed to capacity on the evening of Sunday 19th December to share in a service of traditional carols and readings to celebrate the birth of Christ.  The children of Caston Primary School sang and played several Christmas tunes on the hand-bells which was much appreciated by the congregation and Father Bob Nichols led the service .  Following the Blessing and singing the final carol of "Oh Come All Ye Faithful", warm mulled wine and mince pies were served.  Altogether it was a great occasion to commence the Christmas celebrations.
