Tintern Abbey Torchlight Carol Service

Tintern Abbey Torchlight Carol Service


NP16 6SE


Chepstow Rotary


On Saturday 07 December the Chepstow Rotary Club will stage its annual Torchlight Carol Service at Tintern Abbey.

From 5pm families will gather around The Anchor Inn, Tintern and shortly afterwards form columns holding their flaming torches on high to light their way, while the smaller members carry their glowing light-sticks. The processions will then walk slowly around the outside of the Abbey while the wonderful singing of the combined Wyedean and St John's on-the-Hill choir radiates from within. Once all are within the Abbey the congregation sings together the most popular carols lead by the combined School Choirs. The carols will be interspersed with seasonal Bible readings while prayers will be led by the Reverend Tony Jones.

This Torchlight Carol Service is a very special local event that launches the Chepstow Christmas Season.

Please visit www.chepstowrotary.co.uk for details. Adult (over 16) entry is by personal programme that may be purchased on the night or from the Tintern Abbey shop, The Anchor Inn or Miles Morgan travel agents in Chepstow high street. Do remember that all profits go towards Rotary charities. See you there.
