Classical Candlelit Carols service - Sunday 15 December


On Sunday 15 December at 6pm, come and enjoy the very special atmosphere of St Mary's lit by candles and join our choir in singing some favourite carols. Please do arrive early, as it is usually our most popular service in the year and we anticipate a full house.

Afterwards, do linger in the candlelight for a glass of mulled wine and a hot mince pie as we begin to celebrate the approaching Christmas season.

We'll be weaving lessons from scripture with wonderful pieces from our choir. Everyone who comes will be given a candle to light their way and together we'll sing traditional words to the best-loved carols:

  • O come, all ye faithful
  • Unto us is born a Son
  • O little town of Bethlehem
  • God rest you merry, gentlemen
  • The first Nowell
  • Hark the herald angels sing (first published by Charles Wesley when he was a minister at our church)
Like all of our public services, admission is free.
