The service will take the form of seven lessons and carols by candlelight. We’ll be expected to give the carol singing some oomph to help the congregational singing I’ll make sure you’ve got the words. This will be a lovely start to Christmas in what is a stunning church.
1st Carol – Once in Royal David’s City - which would be lovely if the first verse could be sung by a soloist from the choir at the back of the church next to the Christmas tree? Congregation join in from verse 2.
2nd Carol – O come all ye faithful
3rd Carol – Away in a manger
4th Carol – Silent Night will be sung by KnAC.
5th Carol – While Shepherds watched.
6th Carol – We three Kings.
Prayer & Blessing
7th Carol – Hark the herald angels sing
Short break for mulled wine followed by a 20-minute set of Christmas songs sung by the Choir finishing with Merry Christmas Everyone?
