Christmas Fayre 2014

     
 

Friday 12 December, mercifully fine and not too cold, was the evening of our annual Christmas Fayre, with plenty to entertain adults and children alike. We were pleased to welcome in noticeably more people than last year and there was a relaxed and informal party atmosphere. Food and drink, games and gifts, tombola and raffles were all on offer at the stalls in the side aisles. Father Christmas took time out of his busy schedule to make a flying visit to see the children, and ‘Mr Bubbles’ the balloon modeller was kept busy making bespoke balloons – then the children had great fun testing out how high their balloons would float above the warm air vents at the front of the nave.
 

Throughout the evening musical entertainment was provided by Moulton 77 Brass Band, our own Trevor Tuddenham on the violin, and St Matthew’s Church Choir led the carol singing towards the end of the evening, also singing unaccompanied carols. A Christmas reading, a prayer and the Blessing ended the proceedings.

Although one of our major fundraising events, the Fayre is also an opportunity for us at St Matthew’s to welcome in, and enjoy the company of, the wider Kingsley community, many of whom would not ordinarily come into St Matthew’s Church; this event enables them an opportunity to make that first step through our door.

Please find below a selection of photos.
