Nine Lessons and Carols

6pm Friday, 22 December 2017

St Mary's Church, Kirkby Lonsdale

Nine Lessons and Carols

Following the success of last year’s Service of Nine Lessons and Carols, this traditional celebration of Christmas in words and music will be held again in St. Mary’s Church on Friday 22nd December, starting at 6pm. 

Enjoy listening to the telling of the Christmas story and hearing and singing traditional Christmas music and carols. We anticipate that the 8 churches of the Rainbow Parish will be represented through reading the lessons and being part of a choir. Members of the local community are also welcome to be part of the choir, and although the pieces of music will not complicated and will be as accessible as possible to all, we expect that one or two choir rehearsals will be needed. Details of dates and times of these are still to be finalised. 

Further information can be obtained from Chris and Penny Norris (tel. 015242 73556), Mike Martindale (015242 71168) or Margaret Worthington (015242 71699). If you would like to take part, it would be very helpful if you could please contact any of us by the end of November. We look forward to hearing from you, and to welcoming you to St. Mary’s on Friday 22nd December.
