Lessons & Carols Worship Service

All-Church Worship Service

The Lessons and Carols Service is a 130-year old Christmas tradition formalized at King’s College in Cambridge, England and used by a multitude of churches around the world. In lieu of our regular worship service, please join Christ Church as we remember and celebrate the birth and coming of Jesus together as one congregation, with readings from the Christian Scriptures, beautiful music, and congregational singing of carols.
