The traditional service of lessons and carols for Christmas, as popularized by King’s College Cambridge.

Carols new and old sung by the Choristers of St. John the Divine, and favourite Christmas hymns for everyone to sing. 


A note about language:

In our worship we use language which is poetic and filled with metaphor and wonder – realising that any language about God is limited. We use some ancient words which may seem odd, or may seem to refer to God as male, or in terms which elsewhere we might not choose to use. The poetry and the metaphor are there not to restrict or define our understanding of God, but to remind us that our words are never enough to talk about the Divine: instead we use the beauty of the words and music in our worship to help us glimpse just a little of the God beyond all words.
