Carols By Candlelight (Recorded December 18th 2016)
The video will start playing automatically after a few seconds - so make sure your speakers aren't turned up too loud. This is a first for us - here is our 2016 Carol Service in video format. It was a wonderful service with a packed church. Thanks to all who organised both the service, and the refreshments afterwards.
Thanks to David Jones for filming it for us so that we can share with you. The service features carols, readings and special choral items from St. Elizabeth's Church Choir. Enjoy...and a Merry Christmas from all at St. Elizabeth's to all you loyal readers of our Website! We get many regulars to our Website (five and a half thousand in the last year) and many new people too!
