The Christmas countdown has started in Hope with our Christmas Starts service and light switch on.
It all started inside, where we heard from Mary, the angels and the centurion Dave Healey !
The church was full of people ready to hear who was about to arrive! They proceeded outside to be led by the angels in song until we were ready for the countdown.
Unfortunately though, there was no room at the inn (Red Lion) meaning Mary and Joseph needed to find somewhere to stay, so she could give birth!
Once they found their way over to the stable, the countdown started for the star to be lit! Play the video below to see the moment it happened.
Once the bells had stopped ringing, all the lights were switched on!
A massive thank you to everyone who helped support our service, it is not possible without you all!
