Advent 4: A Service of Readings and Carols

Sunday Worship for 20th December 2020 – A Service of Readings and Carols

Today, the fourth Sunday in Advent, we welcome you as Karen Smith and Tom Dean from Beacon Hill URC lead us in a Service of Readings and Carols and the lighting of the fourth candle on our Advent wreath.

We gather together today to hear with joy the message brought by angels. We continue our journey in heart and mind to Bethlehem, there to reflect on the nativity of our Saviour through song and through listening to the word of God.

Many thanks to the Chevalier family, for lighting the Advent candles, and to our readers, Moira Bamfield, Alan Tyler, and Kathy & Hugh Le Fanu.

We are delighted that the Chapel Choir from St.Edmund’s School, Hindhead have sent us some recordings of the children singing for us to listen to, and that some Christian singers & groups have set aside copyright issues so we can show their recordings online.

All other credits are acknowledged on the Order of Service.
