December started with Advent Sunday, when we lit the first candle on our Advent crown. Andrew has been following a course to prepare for church membership with Susannah, and at the service, he was received into full membership.
The bible fellowship met on Tuesday 4th, when we continued the study of Amos. Because the rest of the month is busy, we will next meet in January.
Men's breakfast met on Monday 10th as usual.
The annual "Five courses and Carols" took place on the 13th, when we dined on: Oxtail soup, mackerel paté, ham baked on hay, fig pudding, cake and cheese, tea and coffee, with carols between each course.
The chapel was re-arranged for the Advent Carol service on the 16th.
The theme was "Prepare ye the way of the Lord."On Monday the 17th we gathered in the car park at 6-30 p.m. for our annual carol sing round the valley.
Wednesday 19th was the Ladies' meeting carol sing with the Salvation Army band. The chapel had to be put back to normal for this event.
Brian led our Christmas carol service on the 23rd.
Susannah led the Christmas day service. The completed Advent crown is visible in this picture.
Jonathan led the last service of 2012 on Dec. 30th.
