Wednesday evening

Over 70 people attended the Wednesday evening bilingual Carol service at St Benet’s on 16th December, 2009, despite the dreadful winter weather.

The London Welsh Camerata delighted the congregation with their versions of Sua’r Gwynt, Ar Gyfer Heddiw’r Bore and Ganwyd Iesu while award-winning mezzo-soprano Caryl Hughes sang traditional carols and thrilled her audience with a moving performance of the Allelua from Mozart’s Exultate Jubilate.

The congregation sang Christmas hymns enthusiastically in Welsh and listened to familiar and much-loved seasonal readings.

We welcomed quite a few new faces and everyone enjoyed a substantial buffet after the service.

This enabled some long-lost friends to be reunited after 40-odd years and it just goes to show that it’s quite true what they say about the Welsh – any two strangers will, within minutes, find a connection.


Sunday afternoon

Sunday afternoon’s bilingual Carol service at St Benet’s on 20th December, 2009 was well attended with over 50 participants, despite the bitter cold and icy conditions.

This service was more of a family event and it was delightful to see some familiar faces as well as a number of new people from the locality.  We do hope we will see you again soon.

Again, we are grateful to members for providing a generous Welsh tea with the usual high standard of baking.
