Carol Service for the National Trust Estate at Lanhydrock

The Parish Church of St Hydroc was a fitting setting for the National Trust to hold a Carol Service for staff, volunteers and family. The service started with the traditional solo of the first verse of Once in Royal David's City, beautifully sung by Bryony, a volunteer for the National Trust. This was followed by plenty of singing for everyone, interspersed with Bible readings and poems.

The organist was Grahame Lee, the priests were Rev Margaret Millson and Rev Roger May and the organiser and steward was Laurence Harvey, suitably attired in Victorian dress and giving a candle to each member of the congregation. Rev Millson encouraged us to keep the candle and re-light it on Christmas Day to remind us that Jesus is the light of the world.

The collection will be given to St Petroc's Society, whose aim is to end street homelessness in Cornwall.

After the service everyone was invited to the Servant's Hall for mulled wine and mince pies - a lovely thank you to the staff and volunteers at the National Trust estate at Lanhydrock.
