Carols by Candlelight

Carols by Candlelight at the Chapel in the Valley, Griffydam

This traditional carol service was held at the Chapel in the Valley, Griffydam on Sunday 18th December 2016.  The small country Chapel was full with some 80-people attending.  There were representatives from Hospice Hope, the chapel and the village of Griffydam taking part in the Bible and Carol readings.  Ages of readers ranged from young to old.

The singing was lead by organ and flute producing a great sound and great singing.

Helen Pardoe, the Worship Leader at the Chapel in the Valley, directed the proceedings in a very sensitive and touching way.

Most people stopped for some time to enjoy meeting up with friends and sample the refreshments that had been provided.

After the 2015 event, the first joint carol service, someone said “wouldn’t it be lovely if the same thing happened next year” – well it did and everyone present felt uplifted into a true Christmas spirit.
