Nine Lessons & Carols Service Sunday 22 December 2013


Imagine St Hildeburgh's Church, Stanley Road, Hoylake, illuminated only by flicker­ing candles, reflecting bright points from the Christmas decorations. Then envisage more light – a reflection of the Star in the East? – suddenly flowing into the building in mysterious and magical ways.

No more clues. You’ll have come along to experience the wonder of it all.

● The occasion: The Nine Lessons and Carols service.
● The date: Sunday, 22 December 2013, at 6.00pm.
● The place: St Hildeburgh's. Where else?

The service will be traditional in many ways, though the Lessons will be accompanied by explanations in mod­ern language. As well as the carols, the choir will sing a selection of Christmas music.
