Virtual Christmas Carol Services 2021

This year we are hosting our second Virtual Christmas Carols service online, but don’t worry, you don’t need to be sporty to watch!

In 2021, we will have just one service which will be aired on Youtube, Facebook and through our website at 7.30pm Wednesday 15th December. However, if you miss it, it will be available until early January to watch again.

Our Carol service will be hosted by James Lusted, Broadcaster and Sports Chaplaincy UK Trustee and Ambassador, alongside Warren Evans, CEO of Sports Chaplaincy UK.

We are privileged to partner with Hope for Justice this year and Tim Nelson from the charity has recorded an interview which you can share and he also speaks during the service.
The Carol Service includes readings from partners, ambassadors and church leaders, The Blessing sung by children across the world, Christmas messages from UK Christian Leaders Gavin Calver and Debra Green and a great teaching message from Mark Greenwood, the National Evangelist for Elim.

Philippa Hanna and Noel Robinson will be leading us in singing some great carols!
Please share this carol service, if you tweet, please use the hashtag #VirtualChristmas.

If you are running an in-person event please take on board all the appropriate measures required.

Please be safe and have a wonderful Christmas!
