Staunton Harold Church

Staunton Harold Church, or the Chapel of the Holy Trinity, as it is also known, was the setting for the annual carol service held on Friday 8th December. Built in 1653, this National Trust property is a place which is always worth visiting.

Despite the cold and very dark night, this beautiful gothic style Church was very nearly full of people from all over the area. 

The choir from St Helen’s Church in Ashby led the singing and the readings were given by various people from the Church and outside.

An excellent message was given by Andy Smith, a lay reader from St Helen’s.

A number of Hospice Hope Trustees and members attended the service and a collection during one of the carols was donated to Hope House in Griffydam, just a little way from Staunton Harold.
