Charles Wesley, the brother of Methodist founder John Wesley, penned as many as 9,000 hymns and poems, of which this is one of his best-known. It was said to be inspired by the sounds of the bells as he walked to church one Christmas morning and has been through several changes. It was originally entitled Hark How All the Welkin Rings – welkin being an old word meaning sky or heaven.
Our Residents enjoyed a good array of Christmas carols, followed by traditional mince pies with Rev Tim, Rev Helen and the ministry team from St Luke's. This was a fantastic afternoon of entertainment with everyone joining in with the festivities of the season.
