It is now a very long-standing tradition that the Chester Salvation Army Band and Songsters come to Tarvin Methodist Church in December to lead a traditional Carol Service. It is an immensely popular evening, marking as it does for many people the beginning of the Christmas season. One way that we recognise this popularity is that it is one of the very few services in a year when folk stop us in the street to find out exactly when it will be.

Salvation Army Christmas

The answer is always the same — it is at 7.30 pm on the second Thursday in December — which this year falls on THURSDAY 12th DECEMBER.The Salvation Army are good friends of ours at Tarvin Methodist Church. This service is one of their real favourites because the congregation take such a lively part in the proceedings. The format varies little from year to year — the carols are led by the brass band, there are soloists of real quality and it is worth turning up just to watch their talented youngsters as they wield their tambourines for all they are worth! What an evening!

It always ends with tea, mince pies and lots of good fellowship. What could be a better start to Christmas?
