Christmas Services

Lessons and Carols and Christmas Dinner - Wednesday, December 19 

6 p.m. service followed by dinner

Lessons and Carols is a beautiful tradition dating back to 1918 at King’s College, Cambridge. The readings and music together tell the whole Christmas story, from creation, disobedience, and prophecy to birth, redemption and beyond. Please enjoy a delicious Christmas dinner in Leatherbury Hall following the service.
