Advent Lessons and Carols

The Advent Lessons and Carols service recorded at the beginning of Advent 2021, is a time of spiritual preparation as we watch and wait for the fulness of the Kingdom of God in our lives and in the world. Through holy scripture and sacred music, we journey from the early prophesies of the Hebrew scriptures through to the announcement of Jesus’ birth.
