Candles were lit as Christmas Carols returned to Brampton Church at the village carol service on a windy 15th December. Lesson readers drawn from all ages took us steadily through the nativity story. The Vicar, The Rev.Fergus Capie, added to the atmosphere of contemplation amidst celebration with a carefully judged meditation upon the real meaning of Christmas. Joyce Vincent, formerly of Low Farm, who was for so many years the Church Warden of Brampton Church, was a very welcome addition to the congregation. Mulled wine warmed the congregation after the service of lessons and carols. We felt set up and ready for the coming season.
