Nine Lessons & Carols

Posted on: November 11th, 2019 by stpeterstsimon

Enter into the sacredness of the Christmas week with a candlelight, traditional service.

The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a service that has its roots in Victorian England.  The service tells the story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus in nine different readings, beginning in Genesis and ending in the Gospels.

The readings are interspersed with a selection of well-known Christmas Carols, hymns, and choir anthems.  You will be treated to the music of Chilcott, Sirrett, Holman, Vaughan Williams, and Rutter.

A mince tart and mulled wine reception follows the service in the great hall.

Children’s Musical

Posted on: November 11th, 2019 by stpeterstsimon

Sunday, December 15th @ 4pm, drop by for a humorous and touching performance of the Christmas story presented by the children of our parish and of the neighbourhood.  This year the musical will be Once Upon a starry night.  Choir Director, Robin, Davis, and the children have been practising since September, so be sure to save the date in your calendar.
