    • The Friends of St James, Bishampton Christmas Celebration Friday 13th December 2019 at 7:-00 for 7:30 pm

    A mixture of seasonal reading, carols with mulled wine & nibbles + the world famous Bishampton Christmas pop-up choir. 

    This is our annual event for the trustees of Friends of St James, Bishampton to say a big thank you to all our members. We hope too, that as many villagers as possible can pack the church and, for just over an hour, will absorb the traditional festive mood!

  • There will be well‑known carols, witty readings and seasonal fun.The event is free, non-religious and very informal and we’re aiming to pack our lovely warm church, raise the rafters with a good old sing-song, and enjoy a glass of mulled wine or soft drink and a mince-pie or two.St. James’ Church is at the heart of our community and has been transformed by local fund-raising over the past six years – come and see how this beautiful building has changed and what it has to offer.The trustees hope to see you there!  😉

  • The Friends of St James Christmas Celebration Friday 14th December @ 7pm for 7:30

A mixture of seasonal reading, carols with wine & nibbles + the world famous Bishampton Christmas pop-up choir. Entry is free – but leaving ..?

We’re inviting you to spend an hour or so celebrating the festive season with some well‑known carols, witty readings and downright seasonal fun.

The event is free, non-religious and very informal and we’re aiming to pack our lovely warm church, raise the rafters with a good old sing-song, and enjoy a glass of mulled wine or soft drink and a mince-pie or two.

St. James’ Church is at the heart of our community and has been transformed by local fund-raising over the past six years – come and see how this beautiful building has changed and what it has to offer.

This year’s celebration is a bit shorter than last but the quality and singing will be better than ever.

So come along and sing your favourite carols “beltato” (Italian musical term meaning as loud as you safely can), enjoy some warming mulled wine and lift your spirits before your relations arrive!  😉
