More about our Christmas events
A programme of Christmas carols and seasonal songs given by The Coastal Chorale, a community choir based in Wells and South Creake that has been singing together for three years. Doors open at 7.00pm. Entry £3 to include refreshments.
A traditional service of carols and readings for all the family with Christingles for the children.
It's also when we'll be handing in our Reverse Advent Calendar food boxes for the Fakenham Food Bank. Since Advent Sunday, parishioners have been collecting an item of food each day of Advent. After Christmas our donations will be used to help replenish the Food Bank supplies and enable them to cope with the expected increase in demand throughout January.
All Saints' Waterden is the other church in South Creake Parish - a tiny Anglo-Saxon building literally out in the fields east of the village. The candlelit carol service - there is no electric supply - is hugely popular with up to 150 people squeezing in. It's an extraordinary, not-to-be-missed experience, but make sure you get there early, wrap up warm, and bring a torch and serious footwear for the path across the field. Click here for a map.
Come and experience the sharpest and most joyous Midnight Mass for miles around with smells and bells South Creake style. Fr Clive Wylie SCP, our Vicar, is the celebrant and preacher. At Our Lady Saint Mary we are proud of our inclusivityand EVERYONE IS WELCOME.
