Recording of Carol Service 2020

Christmas tree outside Church

Thank you to all our supporters who joined us at the Virtual Carol Service on Monday 7th December 2020. We truly appreciate your support and all the lovely feedback we have received about this event. We do hope that despite the fact that we could not all gather in the church, this Service gave you the feeling of warmth and togetherness in these times of separation.

In case you were not able to join us on the night and would still like to enjoy the recording, we have made it available until 31st December. You can purchase your ticket and we will send you the access details in an email.

Here is what other people have said about the Service:

Vox Cordis really did excel themselves and it was lovely to have the Bradfield and Elstree Choirs too. The readings were most apt and entertaining. I was particularly impressed by the address from Dick Moore who encapsulated what the Charlie Waller Trust endeavours to achieve with the greatest insight.

I just wanted to tell you know how very much I enjoyed your wonderful Carol Service online. I sat down in a comfortable chair and watched it all and sang along to all the carols too. I thought you organised it all beautifully, and it was also lovely to see the Elstree and Bradfield School Choirs each singing a carol.”

Thank you for all the effort that was put in to setting up the service and to those who played a part in it. We very much enjoyed the hour and, as strict ‘shielders’ – really appreciated the opportunity of being able to enjoy a carol service, virtually.”

"Thank you all for the most glorious Carol Service. We watched it yesterday evening on our verandah overlooking the Great Rift Valley as the sun was setting over Mount Longonot and it transported us to a feeling of Mental Well being and Christmas Spirit. We had never heard the poem read by Chris Tarrant OBE before and loved it."

Enjoy this Carol Service from the comfort of your own home!
