Lyme residents will be able to sing carols this Christmas

LYME Regis churches are organising a drive-in carol service to be held at the Woodmead Halls car park on Sunday, December 20 at 3pm.

The service will be led by the Reverend Chris Martin, rector of the Golden Cap Team, and the Reverend Chris Woodman, pastor of Lyme Regis Baptist Church, with music from the Lyme Regis Town Band.

To comply with COVID-19 regulations those attending will be required to stay within their cars throughout the service. Parking charges have been waived, by kind permission of Lyme Regis Town Council, for those attending the carol service.

Places are limited and therefore booking is essential by contacting Alan Vian by emailing or telephone 01297 442220 leaving your name and vehicle registration number.

The Reverend Martin said: “In these strange and difficult times, I welcome the opportunity for people to gather safely and hear again, in word and song, the story of the first Christmas.

“It’s a story that connects us with hope and, after the year we’ve had, hope is a precious commodity indeed. I look forward to welcoming you on behalf of the churches working together in Lyme Regis.”

Socially-distanced carolling

Uplyme resident Sarah Causley is also organising two community carolling events in the run up to Christmas.

Everyone is welcome to join in with socially-distanced carol singing at the King George V playing field in Uplyme on Friday, December 18 from 6.30pm, and touring the streets of Lyme Regis on Sunday, December 20 from 5.30pm.

The events will be socially-distanced and those taking part should follow the ‘Rule of Six’ guidelines for outdoor events.

Carol sheets and backing music will be provided at both events.
