The Carol Service will be in the churchyard for everyone’s safety, not inside the church and will take about 30 minutes.
We will stand near the porch on the path and among the gravestones, but we can provide a few seats. The ground is uneven with a few low level stones, so be careful and warn others. Please maintain distance from others.
The service leaders, readers and music accompaniment will be in the porch. The outside lights on the church will give limited lighting.
You will each need a torch – sunset is at 3:48pm. If anyone can bring a lantern for outside use, that would help.
Face coverings are recommended on arrival and departure, but are not essential during the service.
The toilet will be available inside the church, but otherwise do not enter the building.
Having a recent negative lateral flow test is desirable. Please do not come if you had a positive result or you have any Covid-19 symptoms
The Order of Service, including words for the carols, will be available as a pdf file which you might like to download to your mobile phone or tablet to use at the service. We will email this to those who have booked and try to have it on the Wiverton in the Vale Parish web site (www.wivertoninthevale.co.uk), as well as a QR code on the noticeboard. A paper version (without the carols) and a carol sheet will also be available.
Booking is no longer essential but preferred.
Parking on the green at the church is slightly restricted.
So keep warm and we’ll make some joy in spite of the restrictions.

Carol Services are also planned at churches in Tythby, Granby and Elton that day (check on www.wivertoninthevale.co.uk ).
