 2020 Lockdown Christmas

 LW Christmas Carols

A Carol Service with no singing didn't quite feel right after the year we have had.  So we decided to have an outdoor carol service with the band playing a few carols.  We started with a short service inside the Church and then we all stood by or inside our cars and the band played a number of carols.  It was another outdoor lovely fellowship and the band enjoyed the first time of playing since Christmas last year.

In the history of Lower Withington Brass Band, they have gone out playing carols at farms and houses in the village for over 150 years.  This year was only the second year that we were not able to continue our tradition as a result of the Covid 19 pandemic, the other year was due to foot and mouth.  However, a few individual band members played for 30 minutes on the village green whilst some villagers and members of the Church came to walk around the village green and listen to the carols instead.  We are hoping to be able to do a concert sometime during 2021 and we may even have a selection of carols even if it is in the Summer!  Watch this space.

 
2020 Harvest with a difference
 

Harvest 8

This year our harvest service had to be different as a result of COVID 19, therefore, we enjoyed fellowship with each other at an outdoor service in our car park. 

Instead of singing as a congregation, we enjoyed listening to ourselves singing the usual harvest hymns accompanied by our organist from the service two years ago. 

Our Church is normally decorated with lovely Harvest displays within the Church, but unfortunately this couldn't happen this year.  This however, didn't stop us and so some bales of straw were placed in front of the Church and a few ladies created a wonderful display of vegatables and flowers to brighten up the front of the Church.  Then instead of us having our annual auction of produce from within the Church raising money for a local charity we decided this year to support the local food bank at New Life Church.
