The MEGS E Comp John Bennett processed in with Provincial Principals and accompanied by Margaret Wynn, Lay Preacher of St John’s. The MEGS then gave a welcoming address giving a brief update on activities this year and thanking the St John The Baptist Church and Charchwardens for allowing the Province to have the Carol Service here once again.

The service was then continued commencing with a carol by the St Cecilia Choir and readings with the congregation in full voice for the other carols, with Comp Barry Renwick, Pr Organist, playing splendidly.
