St Garmon’s church

3rd December 2016

For the third year, the now (almost) traditional 9 lessons & Carols took place in St Garmon’s church on Saturday 3rd December 2016.

The theme this year was “Winter” but it didn’t snow and it wasn’t that cold. Indeed, the packed congregation must have left full of warm feelings of goodwill towards friends and family who joined in this opener to the Christmas season.

The main catalyst for all this was Côr Dewi Sant under the eagle eye and baton of Ruth Evans. There were carrots as well as stick but only on various snowmen who somehow found their way into the choir. Christmas carols were sung by choir and congregation, the choir sang more including the Kyrie from Karl Jenkins’ “Armed Man”, and there were also performances from the children, Plant Dewi Sant , from the Contraband barber shop quartet and a trumpet solo from Bedwyn Lloyd Philips; And nine readings, both sacred and secular from choir members.

It was in all a splendid menu with which to open the Christmas season in Llanarmon-yn-Iȃl. And £722 was raised from the Collection for Church funds.

Who could ask for anything more?
