The Rotary Club of Crowthorne, Sandhurst and Bracknell invites you to the Service of Nine Lessons and Carols, in the beautiful Chapel of Wellington College, on Friday 16th December. 7pm for 7.30 pm.
Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a service traditionally celebrated near Christmas Eve and is the story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah and the birth of Jesus. The story is told by 9 readings interspersed with the singing of Christmas Carols, Hymns and Choir Anthems.
This year we are proud to have Revd Laura Wheatley Downs conducting the service with Karen Phillips (Director of Music) and The Cecilia Singers supported by Organist Stewart McSweeney. They will create the Spirit of Christmas in the traditional way.
Monies raised from this event will be used to support the Rotary International Club of Kyiv who are preparing shelters for Internally Displaced People in the Ukraine as winter sets in.
