On Sunday 17 December at noon, we celebrated the traditional Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols at the Cathedral. This popular service was well attended as usual, and a variety of voices was heard as volunteers read the nine passages that tell the story of Jesus’ birth from the moment it is foretold in the book of Genesis in the Bible. Each reading was illustrated with live props by our churchwarden.
After the service, we had a lively social time on the benches outside the cathedral. Some snaps from the occasion can be seen in this online album.
This Sunday at noon (Christmas Eve), a short service for the Fourth Sunday in Advent will be followed by the return of the Posada to Epiphany Island and all are welcome to join us for this.
On Christmas Day, there will be a service of prayers and readings at noon in the chapel.
