Winter songs in the Church

Not only is Stanmer Church picturesque, but it also has a beautiful interior with great acoustics.  Because of this, it has been used as a venue for many winter/candlelit performances by various groups.

  • In the early 1980s Ann Markwick, Churchwarden and Organist, (also Caretaker of Stanmer House) arranged a Christingle service every Advent. All the children carried decorated oranges. The orange represented the world, the red ribbon Christ’s love and blood, the four sticks the four seasons, the sweets and dried fruits all God’s creations and the candle Christ’s light to the world bringing light to peoples darkness. I’m not sure what Paddington, Ann’s inseperable dog, represented!
