Sunday evening's 'Bedford Carols' was a great success. We had lots of guests who enjoyed singing and listening to an explanation of the first Christmas events. The music was especially fantastic. Thank you to all who played and sang for us. Tom Clarke's new arrangements worked brilliantly. I'm sure he'd want to single out Simeon Lumgair and Colin Hall for their help. Well done to everyone involved in transforming the room and creating a festive atmosphere. Our thanks to Claudia Demuth and her team. Thanks also to Phil Craig and his group of 'techies' who lifted and shifted loads of kit and set it all up to make sure that we could be heard. It was a terrific event and we're very grateful to God for everyone who volunteered, invited, attended and prayed.
