Advent Calendar – Advent 3

You can add some sparkle (okay, maybe just a little twinkle🌟) to your Advent by watching this week’s on-line Advent Calendar, and that includes some Advent mirth watching the sound synchronisation on the opening piece – it all adds to the fun! 🙂

Christmas is coming! Our Advent Calendar – with parishioners and their families reading Luke’s narrative leading up to the birth of Jesus has arrived in time for Advent Sunday! Open the first window at:

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,





An Act of Remembrance, videoed mainly at St James’s Church, Boroughbridge but also including shots of the war memorials at Boroughbridge and Lower Dunsforth. This video is primarily for people remembering at home on Sunday, 8th November, or Wednesday 11th November 2020 – hence its timed release.

Featuring a short introduction, the video features the poems: ‘In Flanders Fields’ and ‘The Victory Emblem’ (‘We shall keep the Faith’), Lawrence Binyon’s words: ‘They shall grow not old…’,  and the Kohima Epitaph, while the focal point is the observance of the Two Minutes’ Silence.  The video is presented by Paul Farrelly and John Francis Moss.

The Two Minutes’ Silence starts 7 mins 8 secs into the video, so it needs starting at 10.52 and 52 secs if you would like the timings to be accurate.

If you’d like some music, you can listen to Jane singing ‘The War is Over’:
