Festival of Lessons & Carols
The Collegedale Academy music department will present the eighteenth Festival of Lessons and Carols on Sabbath, Dec. 7, at 5:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. This musical event is a wonderful way to welcome the Christmas season and to invite friends of other faiths to our Church.
Based on the traditional Christmas service originated at King’s College Chapel, Cambridge, England, the Festival of Lessons and Carols consists of nine passages from both the Old and New Testaments focusing on the incarnation of Christ. Interspersed among these scriptures are familiar carols by the choir as well as congregational singing.
