Annual Festival of Lessons & Carols
Sunday, December 17th, 4:00pm
followed by a festive reception in the Parish Hall.
Join us for our annual offering of A Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols at Christ Church.
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.
During this service, the choir will sing all hymns and carols, various members of our parish community will proclaim the readings.
