The traditional Nine Lessons and Carols service at St Nicholas Church in Bramber was given a modern twist, thanks to pupils at Steyning Grammar School (SGS).

The Rev John Challis explained: β€œThe parish of the 3bs asked if the pupils of Steyning Grammar School could use their imagination and create some modern candle holders to be placed on the end of the pews.”

They used various different materials, from copper and plastic to traditional wood, to design and make them during the summer term.

Prizes were awarded for the best designs, with the top four on display during the December 23 service.

Mr Challis said it was an excellent example of working together and it gave the children a chance to create something and then see it being actually used.
