A Community Carol Service was held at St Martin’s Church, Overstrand on 20th December, 2015.
It was well attended with 120 people present.
The service was taken by Tim Bennett, with traditional carols sung and bible readings read by representatives from various Overstrand organisations, which included the Belfry School, the Methodist Church, the Gardening Club, the Strand Club, the Parish Council and St Martin’s Church.
A poem was read by Viv Hastings and a short play performed by Lynn and Tim.
A new carol “On Christmas Day a humble girl” was sung by all and accompanied by Tim on his guitar.
A collection plate was available for those who wished to donate to the Tearfund.
Refreshments were served after the service which included mulled wine and mince pies.
