Welcome to our Online Carol Service for 2020. At the start of the year we’d never have thought that this is what we’d be doing come the Sunday before Christmas, but I’m thankful and delighted that so many people have contribute readings and other elements to today’s service. Thank you to all of you.
The online service today will follow the pattern we’ve been used to, with the stream starting around 10.25AM on the Emmanuel Group of Churches Facebook Page. You can find that page by clicking on this paragraph.
Once the service is over, we’ll post the video of it on our YouTube channel and below
Krissy has produced a children’s talk and craft activity for today, in spite of being in isolation at home, so extra thanks to her for her hard work this week. If you’d like to watch the craft video before the service, here it is:
