Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols: Sunday 16th December, 6.30pm

A beautiful sequence of bible readings interspersed with choir carols and congregational singing for all to enjoy.

Our second 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 beautiful festive music from the choir 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 join us.

Christmas Day Services

8.00 am and 12 noon           Holy Communion

We offer three services on Christmas morning, the first and last of these are traditional Communion services using The Book of Common Prayer.

10.00 am                              All Age Eucharist

Our main service on Christmas morning is a Eucharist, where God’s people, young and old, gather together to celebrate the joy of Christmas.

We have a candlelit procession, sing carols and offer a less formal sermon to suit all ages. Come and mark the true meaning of Christmas with us at St Mary’s this year.

Following our 10 am service, Will and Claire invite you to join them for a glass of sherry or other refreshments in the Transept, adjoining the Church.
