CHORAL EVENSONG FOR THE FEAST OF ALL SAINTS'
Join us for a service of sung Choral Evensong for The Feast of All Saints' on Sunday November 7th at 4:00pm.
This will be a sung service with the combined choirs of Christ Church, under the direction of Meredith Baker, our Organist & Choirmaster, and the Choral Scholars of St. John's of Lattingtown, under the direction of Chris Brayne, the Director of Music Ministry at St. John's.
Choral Evensong is a mostly sung service of Evening Prayer lead by the Choir and the Clergy. It is a liturgical space in which you can simply sit, listen and pray; allowing the readings, prayers, and music to offer you a glimpse of the divine.
A FESTIVAL OF
LESSONS & CAROLS

The Fourth Sunday of Advent
This service, built largely upon ancient models, was revived in 1880 by Archbishop Benson for use at Truro Cathedral. It has been firmly established as a preparation for Christmas by its use at King’s College, Cambridge, on which service this one is modeled. Wherever the service is heard, and however it is adapted, the pattern and strength of the service, as the Very Reverend Eric Milner-White, former Dean at King’s pointed out, derives from the lessons and not the music. “The main theme is the development of the loving purposes of God…seen through the windows and words of the Bible.” The center of the service is still found by those who ‘go in hearts and minds to Bethlehem’ and who consent to follow where the story leads. Then they may see revealed the God who is among us — and worship.
Festive reception to follow in the Parish Hall.
