Carols By Candlelight

Carols by Candlelight

As we illuminate the chapel with candlelight, join us to celebrate the Christmas story in the building where Charles Wesley’s famous Christmas hymn “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” was originally sung in the 18th Century. The service will have readings as well as traditional and contemporary carols for everyone to enjoy. The perfect service to invite a friend to, or bring the family along as part of your Christmas celebrations.

All are welcome. There is no need to book in advance, just turn up. We hope to see you there.
