A bright start to Christmas

Christmas Eve at St James' Church, Burton Lazars, was marked with a traditional communion service led by Revd Kevin in the morning and finishing with our annual Christingle Service in the evening led by Revd Mary, writes Janet King.

It was good to see many children and families there ensuring our Christmas got off to a good start. Many thanks to everyone who helped make the Christingles and contributed to the service.

There will be no service at St James' Church on New Year’s Eve as we will be joining in with the Parish Service at St Mary’s Church, Melton Mowbray, which starts at 10am. Our next service at St James' Church will be a communion service led by Revd Peter at the usual time of 11.15am on January 7th, 2018.
