The Annual Rotary Torchlight Carol Service

The Annual Rotary Torchlight Carol Service will be held at Tintern Abbey on SATURDAY 07 DECEMBER 2018 from 5pm.

On Saturday 07 December the Chepstow Rotary Club will stage its annual Torchlight Carol Service at Tintern Abbey.  This most popular family event is always well supported and last year over 600 people attended.  Thanks to posters, in-programme advertising and flyers handed out on the High Street the Club enjoys much local support for this wonderful event.  And every drop of profit goes to charity.

From 5pm families will gather around The Anchor Inn, Tintern and shortly afterwards form columns holding their flaming torches on high to light their way, while the smaller members carry their glowing light-sticks.  In fact, due to the increased numbers, there will now be 2 columns entering the Abbey from different directions. The processions will then walk slowly around the outside of the Abbey while the wonderful singing of the combined Wyedean and St John's on-the-Hill choir radiates from within and adds to the ambience.  It is always most satisfying to see the faces of the young, and not so young, reflected in the flames of the torches as they enter the rear of this beautiful and historic building.   Tintern Abbey is certainly an atmospheric location by day.  But by night, in floodlight, with hundreds of flaming torches burning brightly and with the sound of carols sung by the choir, it becomes a positively magical place.  "Harry Potter has nothing on this", said one young visitor.  Once all are within the Abbey the congregation sings together the most popular carols lead by the combined School Choirs.  The carols will be interspersed with seasonal Bible readings while prayers will be led by the Reverend Tony Jones.
