Carols in the Chapel


Bagshot Chapel will be open to all for a short Carols Service on Monday 19th December 6.30pm. Everyone is welcome, and any young people are welcome to come dressed as angels, shepherds or any other Nativity character to add a bit of atmosphere. There will be Readings and time for reflection of Bagshot past.

Since the Chapel is in the village cemetery, we will also focus a little on remembering those members of our family, friends and neighbours, who are no longer here to celebrate Christmas with us. Candles will be lit by the Wall and Garden of Remembrance to burn throughout the service. We will also hear as to how Bagshot was put on the map in Victorian times and how one young lady, Emily Jane Popejoy, tragically lost her life, one Christmas nearly 120 years ago.

There will of course be mulled wine, mulled fruit juice and mince pies at the end!!

This is the first time  Bagshot Chapel has been used in this way, but we hope it will not be the last. Thank you to Windlesham Parish Council for giving their permission to Bagshot Community Events and friends, to open the Chapel for this occasion. Special thanks as well to Rev Andreas, John Bauld and Eugenie Brooks for helping to pull it all together.
