Advent Carol Service, St Michael’s ChurchTapestry chamber choir, Cambridgeshire
We are delighted to welcome the return of the choir “Tapestry” for our Advent carol service, which provides a prelude to the coming festival of Christmas. Besides carols sung by the choir, there will be an opportunity to sing the great Advent hymns.
At the start of the service, another candle will be lit on the Advent Wreath. The Advent wreath is a Christian tradition that symbolizes the passage of the four weeks of the season of Advent. The wreath is a horizontal evergreen wreath with four candles (three purple and one pink) and a fifth, white candle in the centre. Beginning with the First Sunday of Advent, a candle is lit. An additional candle is lit during each subsequent week until, by the last Sunday before Christmas, all four candles are lit. The fifth white candle in the centre will be lit at the Midnight Communion on Christmas Eve in St Michael’s Church.
Our Advent Carol Service takes place on Sunday 9th December starting at 6pm.
