It was truly wonderful to see a packed church for our annual carol service and to feel the power of the congregational singing!  The Vinehall carol service is the highlight of the musical year and always produces memorable performances from the children.  The Juniors’ performance of ‘So Many Stars’ was spellbinding; the Chamber Choir’s performance of ‘The Midnight of your Birth’ was also beautiful; but the children’s favourite was John Rutter’s ‘Christmas Lullaby’.  We were joined for the occasion by the amazing Mr Eadon from the Eastbourne College music department; if you enjoyed his playing and are looking for last-minute stocking fillers, do visit his website at  From the music department, we wish you all a very happy Christmas and a peaceful new year.
