Lessons and Carols
Video of our beautiful and cherished service of Lessons and Carols from past years will be posted on our YouTube channel in two parts, one this coming Sunday and the other the following Sunday, Dec. 20.
Both will be available at 6 p.m., Central Standard Time (GMT-6). If you are not already a follower of our YouTube channel, you should find the link at about that time on our Web page (www.christchurch.mx) or English-language Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ChristChurchMx/ ).
The service is based in the version of the tradition that began at King’s College, Cambridge, in 1918 and that was first broadcast by the BBC a decade later. It principally alternates between readings from the Bible from Creation and the foretelling of the coming of the Messiah through the Miracle of Jesus’s birth with choral and congregational carols. Our own versions feature several skillful additions to the service executed by our splendid choir under the guidance of our choir director Juan Ernesto Villegas.
If you were ever with us in person for this, you know what an exceptionally beautiful and moving service this is. If you weren’t, you’re probably in for a treat.
Journey to the Crèche
In this year unlike any other, Journey to the Crèche at Christ Church will be unlike any other in our long tradition of the service. Except that even in being “virtual,” it will carry on the tradition of aiming for the hearts and minds especially of children.
Come to share the season’s spirit of joy with us: Look for the link in your e-mail by about noon on Thursday, Christmas Eve.
