Taking church out of the building – and into the pubs

Carol services are a regular Christmas highlight in most places – but in the Martley area, the most fun ones are those that take place in the pubs. David has a band that comes together for this, to lead everyone in singing both carols and modern songs with Christmas themes. Thus, ‘Silent night’ takes its place alongside Slade.

So far this year, we’ve had carols at the Crown in Martley and the Admiral Rodney at Berrow Green: tomorrow night we’ll be at the Masons Arms on the edge of Wichenford.

It’s increasingly important for church to move out of the building and into the community – and this is a great example of that.
