Seaford Baptist Church was filled with a festive atmosphere on December 7 when the mayor’s Christmas Carol Service took place.
Dignitaries, councillors and residents enjoyed the service that was presided over by the Reverend Vicky Martin.
The theme was ‘Hope for Seaford’ – with the intention of recognising the community spirit of Seaford, how members of the community and organisations bring hope to each other and the positivity of working together to improve the town.
The Seaford Baptist Church Concert Choir led the carol singing and the congregation enjoyed joining in. There were also performances of much loved Christmas songs from the talented children of Seaford Musical Theatre Juniors. Readings were given by Deputy Mayor Terry Goodman, Town Crier Peter White and Freeman of the Town Laurie Holland.
The congregation was encouraged to light a candle for Seaford as a symbol of hope. After the service there were hot drinks and mince pies.
Mayor of Seaford, Mark Brown said: “Many thanks to all of you who attended this service, in particular Marion Shepherd, the Deputy Lord Lieutenant. It was a delightful afternoon and a pleasure to listen to the children and young people singing.”
A retiring collection for the Mayor’s charities WAVES Family Support and Seahaven Storehouse raised more than £100.
