Crowds and candles at Christingle!

Numbers were up at this year's Christmas Eve Christingle service.  A full church of parents and children young and old
took part in the traditional rituals of carols and readings - and a homily with a difference by Reader Fred Nye.
On parade were various animals associated, accurately or otherwise, with the time of year.
The star attraction was probably the penguin, in his penguin suit and with his penguin beak,
played the organ when he was not illustrating the sermon.
The procession of Christingle-bearers, braving the obligatory Elf and Safety warnings,
wound round the church and survived un-singed.
