Carol Service,

Our annual service of Nine Lessons and Carols is a beautiful start to the Christmas season.

In a service lit by candles and in the beautiful surrounding of St. John's Church, we sing carols and hear of the great story of God's salvation in scripture, culminating in the great narrative of Christmas.

For many, Christmas hasn't begun til they've been to a carol service: do please join us.
