Union Chapel’s annual Christmas Carol Service


Sunday 17th December 2023.
Doors 18:00. 19:00 start.
Attendance FREE, no booking required


Once again, Union Chapel celebrates the birth of Jesus at our annual Carol Service.  This much-loved event sees the Chapel lit by candles, where a packed congregation sings well-known Christmas carols. Throughout the evening, the story of the birth of Jesus will be told in spoken word, prayer and music from Union Chapel Voices, our own vocal quartet, instrumentalists, and actors.
Each year the ancient story continues to speak to us afresh with its message of hope in challenging times.
Please join us for this wonderful celebration.
