Carol Service

It was extra seats to pack them in tonight at our Nine Lessons and Carols Service which was wonderful. I’m very grateful to all those who took part. The music was such a treat.

I used to be firmly of the view that the Nine Lessons service was grim, but I guess that it because all I really had to go on was what comes from Kings’ on Christmas Eve which I’ve not really enjoyed for years. I’ve changed my mind completely about the concept since coming here.

We’ve got into the habit of 2 carol services here – an Advent one at the start of Advent and a Christmas one which happens after we have managed to keep Christmas at bay through 4 Sunday mornings of Advent.

Church was packed. Music was glorious. Good news all round.
