CHOIRS OF S. LEONARD’S CHURCH, HYTHE

CHURCH

 December and Christmas 2020

 Sunday, 15 November 2020

Dear all Choir-members (and parents) 

Because of the latest Covid-19 restrictions imposed by the government on church services there will not be any choirs on Sundays in November, and all week-day rehearsals are cancelled until 2 December.  This is a pity, as things were starting to come together well after the long break from March to September.   

 Meanwhile, early decisions for the Christmas Festival period have been made.  

  • There is no Carols for All concert on 19 Dec (Sat)
  • Sunday 20 - In place of Evensong there will be lessons and carols for the boys and men choir (probably the Advent Carol Service, with some Christmas ones too).
  • Monday 21 - Possible lessons and carols at Postling Church for senior boys and some men – to be confirmed
  • Thursday 24 - no event in the High Street or in the White Hart
  • Thursday 24 at 4pm - Carols in church with readings for ALL CHOIRS
  • NO Midnight Communion
  • Friday 25 Christmas Day 9.30 Eucharist - Boys and Men and Hythe Girls Choir
  • Sunday 27 no choirs
  • Sunday 3 January at 9.30 Hythe Girls Choir and normal Evensong
  • Normal rehearsals from then on.
  • Epiphany Carols at the Evensong slot on 10 January

PROVISIIONAL TIMETABLE for DECEMBER and CHRISTMAS

The intention of the government to end the lockdown on 2 December means that we may be able to resume rehearsals and services then.  However, this will depend on what new regulations are then in force. 

 Best wishes
