Let’s celebrate together

A carol service is the perfect way to start the Christmas week, and this year we would love our readers to join us for the EDP Norfolk Magazine Carol Service on Sunday, December 21.
Jamie Campbell, of St Mary’s Church at Titchwell, has kindly invited the magazine to hold the afternoon service at this beautiful little church which sits on the edge of the north Norfolk marshes and overlooks Titchwell Creek, the RSPB reserve and the Royal West Norfolk Golf Club. St Mary’s has a new rector, as part of the Saxon Shore benefice, Susan Boden-Pickstock.
The EDP Norfolk Magazine Carol Service will begin at 3.30pm, and will be a blend of carols and readings, including one read by the magazine’s editor Angi Kennedy. Mulled wine and mince pies will be available following the service, and donations will be gratefully received towards maintaining the fabric of this ancient building.
St Mary’s is almost 1,000 years old, so what a wonderful place to celebrate one of the Christmas season’s loveliest traditions. Here, on the coast, where seals are regular visitors to the creek, and many hundreds of Pinkfooted geese fly over the church at this time of the year, it promises to be a delightful opportunity to join together in song and friendship.
Jamie is fabric officer for the church while his wife Susan is the warden of the church which has sections predating the 1066 invasion while the belfry is early Norman.
The EDP Norfolk Magazine Carol Service will be at St Mary’s Church, Titchwell, off the A149 Coast Road, at 3.30pm on Sunday, December 21.
