At Easter? — are you sure? .... Christmas — yes, but Easter??

 

 

 

Yes! Without Easter there'd be no Christmas and without Christmas there'd be no Easter — so why not hold a Carol Service for Easter? Kings College, Cambridge did one last year!

This year, in the Mid Warwickshire Circuit we hope to replicate the form of the Christmas Carol Services following the Easter story, rather than the Nativity.

We shall use mostly well-known hymns which celebrate Easter for example, 'We have a gospel to proclaim.'; ' Jesus is Lord.....'; 'To God be the glory...' and there are many more including the usual Easter ones.

We also want to emphasise the link between the two festivals, so we shall sing new Easter words to two familiar Christmas tunes and end with the reading from the gospel of John, Jn 1:1-14 — because it's just as relevant at Easter as at Christmas and it ends 'And we beheld his glory...'. We shall finish with the triumphant hymn 'Thine be the glory': what could be better!

Details of our Easter Carol Services will be posted to the website in March.
