Service of Lessons and Carols

The 'Carol Service' originated early in the last century and has become a  much loved Christmas tradition for  thousands of people. In the service we follow the story of Jesus from the Old Testament prophecies of his coming through to his birth and it's significance through readings and carols. 

At Ash, as in churches throughout the world, the choir and congregation join in singing some of our most traditional and best loved carols and the choir usually sing some new ones that bring out a different significance to the readings in a way we may not have thought of before.
