Another musical offering in the run up to Christmas is the lovely Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. In this service we hear a sequence of bible readings interspersed with choir items and congregational carols for us all to sing – making this one of the quintessential services of the Christmas period and certainly one not to be missed.
Many of the organisations and institutions in Redbourn are represented in the reading of the Lessons – it really is a carol service for everyone to enjoy, it’s free and no tickets are needed.
Do come along and bring family, friends and neighbours.
One of the highlights of Christmas is without doubt witnessing the enjoyment and excitement through young people and our Crib Service on Christmas Eve will be a delight for all children young, and not so young!
We invite all the children to come in costume, dressed up as characters from the Christmas story to play their part as we tell again the story of the First Christmas with singing and prayer.
We gather at our Crib to witness the stable gradually filling with characters as they come to visit the baby Jesus lying in the manger.
The Churches Together in Redbourn warmly invite you to an Epiphany Carol Service
Sunday 6th January, 6.30pm
at St Mary’s Church
A mixture of carols, music from our choir, readings and poetry as we recall the Wise Men travelling to worship the infant Jesus.
