Our service today is led by Pam Nesbitt.
Let us sing together “Away in a Manger”, the words will appear as the music plays.
Readings and reflection
Pam Nesbitt reflects on Christmas with readings from Isaiah 9 2-7 and Luke 2 15-20.
The UK’s favourite carol (according to BBC Songs of Praise) is “O Holy Night”, and it is performed here by Aled Jenkins, Katherine Jenkins and the finalists of the BBC Young Chorister of the Year competition.
Let us say together …
Our Father, who art in heaven
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our debts
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
Finally we join with our church organ to sing “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”, switch on the subtitles if you want to see the words to sing along.
We normally say the words of the Grace to each other. We say them now to whoever is with us, and to everyone we have thought about during this time of worship.
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all, now and evermore. Amen.
With thanks to Pam Nesbitt, Ed Muirhead and Bill Mclean.
All services in January will be online.
