Advent Music Series with
Lessons & Carols

Sundays December 4th, 11th, & 18th 2022 at 4:00pm

Join us for a series of musical offerings at Christ Church during the season of Advent. 

Meredith E. Baker, Christ Church Organist and Choirmaster, will offer the first of our Advent organ recitals, December 4th, on the newly refurbished Cavasant organ console with guest recitalists joining on subsequent Sundays. 

A Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols

Sunday December 18th at 4:00pm

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.

THE FEAST OF THE INCARNATION
CHRISTMAS EVE

Join us at Christ Church as we celebrate the Feast of the Incarnation on Christmas Eve.

 

There will be a Celebration of the Holy Eucharist at 4:00pm.

 

At 8:00pm there will be a service of Carols & Readings for Christmas. 

O come, let us adore him!
