PAST EVENTS IN CHITTERNE
Christmas in a Pandemic
When you can’t easily gather in church, why not bring church out into the community? That’s what we did in Chitterne in December of 2020. A stable complete with light-up star was introduced into the churchyard and as the days progressed shepherds, sheep and the wise men came along to wonder at the birth of the Christ child. The village were able to gather safely outside for Carols at the crib, and somehow things felt a little more ‘normal’ at the end of an extraordinary year.
Flower Festival 2019
A wonderful event in our Chitterne calendar is the Flower Festival, this year themed ‘Books we have Loved’. Along with the magnificent displays in church, visitors were treated to lunch, or tea and cake in the neighbouring village hall. The weekend concluded with a special Songs of Praise service. We can’t wait to do it all again in a couple of years’ time!
