CHRISTMAS UNWRAPPED

Chalfonts top 10 CAROLS

We will be singing through the top 10 Carols of Chalfont on 20th and 22nd December. Please take a survey slip AND an invitation ’ticket’ to invite your friends, family and neighbours to ’the Big Reveal’. It’s best to ask people to fill out the survey with you so that you can return it to church for counting, and then give them the invite asking them if they want to see their chosen Carols make it into the top 10!

If there is something you would like to get involved in but don’t know who to ask, or if you would like to explore ways that you could serve at church, we would love to hear from you. Find out about volunteering via the church office.
