Candlelit supper at Candlemas

Posted: 13th February, 2017

Nearly 50 people gathered in St Margaret’s Church in Topsham for a Candlemas Supper as part of a weekend of Candlemas celebrations, that included a visit by Bishop Sarah.

A two-course meal was served and people took part in quizzes and games.

On Sunday morning the Family Worship focussed on young and old, darkness and light, and remembering our baptisms.

Organiser Tony Raven said: “Families who had baptisms during 2016 were invited to the service and seven or eight were there. Children took great joy in sprinkling the congregation with water using twigs of rosemary.”
