Prepare ye the way! The Light cometh in the darkness!

A wonderful and meaningful way to usher in the season of Advent is through the service of Advent Lessons and Carols. This service, originally composed by The Very Reverend Eric Milner-White for use at King’s College Chapel, Cambridge, proclaims in word and song the promise of God to redeem the world through the Advent of His Son. The metaphoric procession through the liturgy – from darkness into light – is intended to prepare the worshipper for the coming of the true Light, Jesus Christ.

This year, the parish clergy and choir have joined together – along with close inter-faith and ecumenical friends of the parish – to create an online version of this popular service. It is offered as a part of our ongoing cycle of daily liturgies, and as a gift to the parish and the wider community. Please share the link with your friends and help to spread the Advent message that salvation is at hand.

Please join us and be a part of this beautiful liturgy as we begin a new liturgical year and look forward to a joyous Christmastide.

This service will be available on the CSMSG website throughout the season of Advent.
