Flash Christmas

Was on way to midnight service at the cathedral but joined an outdoor one on the High St instead! Thanks @luminouslincoln — Andrew Miller

Just taken part in midnight mass(#flashchristmas) on lincoln high street. Merry christmas everyone. — Christopher Hewitt

Thanks to all who came to #flashchristmas – it was great fun and perhaps even a little holy. — Luminous Lincoln

Before Christmas I had seen posters with #flashchristmas outside St Mary le Wigford but had no idea of the meaning. I had meant to check it out on twitter, but sadly forgot.

When St Paul’s was closed for a week on bogus health and safety grounds, Flash Evensong organised flash evensong on the steps of St Paul’s.

It is catching on, we now have flash compline!

We also have flash Christmas.

Follow the hashtag #flashchristmas and you learn what it was about.

Everything was kept secret until the last minute. A flash mob notified through twitter.

Meet at St Mary le Wigford, a candlelit procession from St Mary le Wigford to St Benedicts’s Square with passers by joining in, and a flash Midnight Mass took place in St Benedict’s Square on Christmas Eve.
