All Saints Church in Walsoken has had a busy time in the run-up to Christmas this year.
On the evening of the Christmas lights switch-on in Wisbech, a team of 15 people braved the cold to sing carols in the Horsefair.
The church has played host to Year 6 pupils from St Peter’s Junior School, Wisbech, with different aspects of the Christmas story being shared by members of the church with items to help illustrate the meaning of Christmas.
Father Christmas visited a very busy coffee morning held in the community room in the church. Presents were given to everyone and Santa led the singing of some carols before he left.
The nativity was held during the morning family service and the usual Angels, Shepherds, Kings, Mary and Joseph were joined by a very grumpy Innkeeper.
Carols were played by the All Saints band and coffee and biscuits were served after the service.
The Christmas card competition held at the coffee morning was well entered and the winner was Peter Woodhouse. He was presented with his prize – a hamper donated by Gagens Butchers Walsoken – by store manager Michael.
Janice Dyke, speaking on behalf of the church, said: “We would like to thank everyone who has taken part, in whatever way, to make our Christmas events go well. Happy Christmas to all and please feel welcome to join in with our services over the festive period.”
