St Mary’s Carol Service Choirs

Mary-Clare is hoping to form a Children’s choir for the Carol Service with rehearsals taking place at 16.00 at St Mary’s every week from Sunday 28th October.

We are also looking, as usual, for anyone else to take part in a scratch choir for the Carol Service. There will be a rehearsal on Saturday 15th December (time tbc) and another short rehearsal before the service on Sunday 16th December. 

If you are interested in joining us or have any questions, please contact Mary-Clare:

Queen Margaret of Scotland 

God the ruler of all

Who called your servant Margaret to an earthly throne

And gave her zeal for your church and love for your people

And attain to the glorious crown of your Saints

Through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord

Amen

Advent Sunday

Almighty God,

give us grace to cast away the works of darkness

and to put on the armour of light,

in which your Son Jesus Christ came to us in great humility;

that on the last day,

when he shall come again in his glorious majesty

to judge the living and the dead,

we may rise to the life immortal;

through him who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
