Our Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is only two days away! As you know, the service will begin at 7pm and is being held in The Prince Royal’s College Chapel. We really have no idea how many people will come but we expect between one hundred and two hundred to attend – we have printed 150 programs!
The schedule for those involved is below. Non-singers are very welcome to come and help set up, and nobody needs to be there the whole day, unless they want to!
12:30 Meet at the Church to gather all we need for the performance
1:00 Arrive at PRC Chapel to set up.
2:30 Rehearsal, the Choir alone
3:00 Rehearse Choir and Brass Together
3:30 complete run through of music
4:30 Supper and tidy up details
6:00 microphone warm up
6:30 Choir/Brass warm up
Tickets are being sold for THB100 in aid of the McKean Rehabilitation Center and will be available on the door.
The service will be followed by refreshments at the Chapel. Caitlin, who is coordinating this, requests that everyone bring cookies, desserts, etc, to share afterwards.
We again plan to share a Christmas lunch together on Christmas Day. However, as nobody has yet signed up for the Christmas Lunch, we may instead make alternative arrangements so that nobody need be alone this Christmas Day. Last Chance! Please sign up this week if you would like to come!
There will be no service on Sunday 27th December as it is only two days after our Christmas services. Worship will resume on 3rd January.
For this Third Sunday in Advent, our readings are Zephaniah 3:14-20, Philippians 4:4-7, and Luke 1:26-38, and we will be singing the hymns Once in Royal David’s City, The Angel Gabriel from Heaven Came, It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, and Angels from the Realms of Glory.
Our sermon will be entitled Mary, did you know?
All are welcome to join us as we celebrate the Christ of Christmas! We hope to see you soon and that you will enjoy worshiping with us,
