A Candlelight Festival of Lessons and Carols

www.southchurch.org

Our service will take shape as an interactive virtual experience. We hope that you will join us in our online community as we celebrate the Christmas season. This beloved tradition is based on the first Festival of Lessons and Carols held in King’s College Chapel, Cambridge, on Christmas Eve of 1918. Featuring the South Church Chancel Choir, the service combines the reading of scripture with choral anthems, traditional Christmas carols, and hymns. A contemplative and hopeful gathering, Lessons and Carols is a beautiful way to prepare for the coming holiday. Tune into youtube.com/SouthChurchNewBritainCT on December 20th at 4 PM to participate in the service with those near and far.
