Throughout the year we have a programme of services with special music celebrating important events in the church’s year. Here are descriptions of some of them.
Harvest Thanksgiving Service – first Sunday morning service in October at 10am
An all-age service with a comprehensive music group singing both traditional Harvest hymns and newer songs celebrating and reflecting on creation.
Advent Sunday Evening 6pm
‘O Come Emmanuel’ – This is a special sequence of readings and music for Advent Sunday evening, to help us prepare for Christmas by reflecting on and recapturing the hope that the coming of Christ brings. Both our choirs sing together at this event and this year we are hoping that St Nicholas Camerata will also be taking part.
Christingle Service – 2nd Sunday before Christmas at 4pm
A special children’s service at which the Junior Choir sing and everyone who comes has the opportunity to make a Christingle as part of the event. What is a Christingle?
Service of nine lessons and carols – Sunday before Christmas at 6pm
One of our most popular services of the year which includes traditional carols, special choir items, with a brass instrumental group accompanying some of the music. Mulled wine and mince pies are served at the end.
Family Carols – Christmas Eve at 5pm and 7.30pm
This service has been so popular that we are now holding two similar services so that everyone can still enjoy Family Carols but we will be able more comfortably to accommodate everybody. The Junior Choir will also be singing at one of these services.
