Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols
Sunday, December 17th, St. James’ Church, 8:00 pm
The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a traditional British and Canadian retelling of the Biblical events that lead up to the Christmas story. They tell us how God fulfills the Old Testament prophecies by creating a new covenant with the New Testament Hebrews. The birth of Jesus is the fulfillment of the prophecies bringing in a new and personal relationship with God.
Join us to hear the readings interspersed with carols sung by the St. James’ choir and the congregation. Usher in the spirit of Christmas with this lovely candlelight service!
Refreshments after the service hosted by the choir.
