Acle churches unite for carols
The churches in Acle held their annual carol concert at the Methodist Church last Sunday, and were evidently visited by the Man in Red!
A cross-section of Acle's Catholic, Methodist, and Church of England communities gathered for their traditional Christmas Carol Concert under the leadership of Roman Catholic Deacon, Rev Peter Glanville; Methodist minister, Rev Andrew King; and Church of England Rector, Rev Martin Greenland.
Carols, ranging from 'Once in Royal David's City' to 'O Come All Ye Faithful' were heartily sung by the packed congregation, accompanied by Elaine Brown and the Broadland Band. Prayers were recited by Martin Greenland, Peter Glanville, and Andrew King at appropriate intervals.
A collection was taken at the end of the concert in aid of the homeless charity 'Emmaus, Norfolk and Waveney'.
Photographed is Mark Lockwood, chairman of Acle branch of the Royal British Legion, playing his usual Santa Claus role.
