 Yes, great celebrations were had, from the contemplative through to the outrageous. (Zillions of bits of cut up paper squares fired out into the congregation, and left on the new carpet for several days. Why? you might ask. It was climax to a dramatic telling of the Christmas story – the birth of the Christ child – by Jackie Francis. Check out very short video here.)
