Christmas 2020 at Carey

The following Sunday morning worship services will all be at 10.30am, except for our carol service on 20 December, which will start at 4pm. We hope that, depending on the situation with Covid, these services will all be held at Carey and we hope also will include others who would prefer not to attend in person, as well as those who can only join us on zoom.

Thank you to Andrew Pennycook for performing and recording various Christmas Carols for us. Some of these were recorded in his home and some were recorded on Carey's pipe organ. These recordings will be uploaded to the Audio section of the website in the weeks leading up to Christmas.  Enjoy.
