Virtual Christmas Carol Services; a partnership between Sports Chaplaincy UK and Hope Together

This year we produced two Virtual Christmas Carols services hosted by James Lusted, Broadcaster and Sports Chaplaincy UK Ambassador. James is joined by Warren Evans, CEO of Sports Chaplaincy UK.

Over the years, many chaplains have held Christmas Carol services at their club or gym. In the past, Sports Chaplaincy UK has partnered with a range of great organisations to resource chaplains host these services. With the current challenges of the pandemic, this year Sports Chaplaincy UK, in partnership with HOPE Together, are offering Virtual Christmas Carols.
During our service tonight, there will be readings from the community of sport, The Blessing sung by children across the world, Christmas messages from UK Christian Leaders and a great teaching message from Dr Dave Smith, Senior Pastor at Kingsgate Church in Peterborough. Worship Leader, Noel Robinson will be leading us in singing some great carols!
Please share this carol service, if you tweet, please use the hashtag #VirtualChristmas.

Sit back and enjoy the service!
