You like beer? You like a good old fashioned village sing along with live music? Then Beer and Carols is something for you!
On 23rd December, the Dice Church changed its format for just one special evening to bring light, love, laughter and life as we celebrated Christmas through beer, carols and Christmas songs. Like a Pied Piper playing his tune, the music flowed from bar to bar in the White Swan as the band tuned up, attracting people to come and join in with the festive fun.
Our first set played out to the traditional carols, but with an upbeat tempo from our live band, whose gifts were generously provided by local villagers, those moving into the village shortly, and those further afield who were happy to join us. A huge thank you to those who gave their time, their dedication, and their premises to allow this wonderful evening of village fun to take place.
After a break where tasty home-made hot mince pies were served up and we recharged our glasses, we began the second set. This consisted of the modern Christmas classics, and we even had an encore of The Fairytale of New York to round the evening off.
Thank you to everyone who came along and packed out the pub to standing room only, and for your generous donations of £100 to Macmillan Cancer Support, especially at this time of the year when finances can get a bit tight.
In the words of Tiny Tim, “God bless us, everyone!”
Dice Church continues meeting every 2nd and 4th Sunday in the month, and you’re all welcome to join in life in all its fullness as we gather to play and explore faith together.
