The Longest Night Service

The Longest Night Service is for people who would love to hear again the readings and the music surrounding the Christmas story, but who find it really difficult to come into church – not just because of the Covid restrictions, but for any reason.  It is a quiet reflective service filmed at St James’s Church, Boroughbridge, with readings and hymns you can either listen to or join in.

Carol Sing-along

A last minute idea for those who have been missing carol singing…

You may remember that on VE Day some of us stood in our front gardens and sung together. This Christmas Eve, there is a national movement to ring bells at 6pm. If you are planning to join in with this, you might also like to follow this by joining with your neighbours and the people in your street (from your own drives/gardens) in a few Christmas songs, the songsheet can be downloaded here: christmas_eve_songsheet

Carol Service from St Mary’s Roecliffe

Our Lessons and Carols service for this year has been recorded from St Mary’s Roecliffe and is available for you to watch here, at any point at which you would like to feel Christmassy!

With thanks to all those involved.



Carol Service for Advent Sunday

Here is your Sunday Service, which this week is a carol service for Advent Sunday with music and readings as we move from darkness to light.

Grateful thanks to our singers from the united parish who recorded the service with me, and to the readers from each Church who were involved.

With every blessing and warmest wishes to you all this Adventide,
