This Sunday St. Andrew’s will hold a Lessons & Carols service during worship. This is a time to enjoy favourite Christmas carols and will be followed by a Christmas reception hosted by the Women’s Association.
However, a Lessons & Carols service is about more than singing favourite carols. It has a deep history within tradition of the church. A Lessons & Carols service has nine lessons that follow the acts of creation, the events in the garden, God’s covenants with humanity and the birth of Jesus. Readings are taken from Genesis, the prophets and the Gospels and include carols and anthems with each lesson.
We hope that you will take the time to join us this Sunday as we continue to prepare for the birth of Jesus. This is a most wonderful time of year. We share in the joy of the birth of the Messiah, who is Christ the Lord!
