Lest you think that in my descriptions of the carol service so far there has been no mention of carols, we did also sing carols! Following the community carol service on Friday, we had to move all the musical equipment (drums, keyboard, amplifiers, pedal boards, microphones etc.) back to our building and get ready for the carol service there.

We sang a range of carols throughout:
* Joy to the World
* In the Bleak Midwinter
* What Child Is This?
* O Come, All Ye Faithful

We also performed a Kutless song called ‘This is Christmas’:

“Remember how the story goes,
God’s gift was wrapped in swaddling clothes,
Beneath the star, one great and holy night.
The shepherds heard the angels sing,
The wise man brought an offering,
Peace on Earth began in Bethelethm
Have we lost the reason that we celebrate each year?

This is Christmas,
It’s all about the Saviour wrapped in a manger.
This is Christmas,
Because of Jesus Christ!
This is Christmas,
Because of Christ!
Because of Christ!”

Kutless,’This is Christmas’

We also got to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ twice:
