Norfolk church’s festive carols in the car park

Parishioners at the Church of St Henry Morse, Diss, gathered at sunset on the Sunday before Christmas for socially distanced ‘Carols in the Car Park’.

The gathering of around 30 people was led by members of the church choir – who hadn’t sung together, or even necessarily seen each other in person, since March. 

Parish priest, Fr Alex Anaman, offered an opening prayer, and parishioner Anne Steel read the Christmas story from the Gospel of St Luke between a selection of favourite carols. 

“A fire was a lovely welcoming touch, and the Christmas lights gave an extra festive feel,” said choir member Judith Tooth. “We even had Saturn and Jupiter lighting our way! It was lovely to be singing together again.”
