Salvation Army Christmas

For many, many years, Chester Salvation Army Band and Songsters have been coming to Tarvin Methodist Church in December to lead a traditional Carol Service.

The evening is so well-expected because, for many, it really does mark the beginning of the Christmas season and folk stop us in the street to find out exactly when it will be. The answer is always the same — it is at 7.30pm on the second Thursday in December — which this year falls on Thursday 14th December

The format varies little — 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?
