The community of Snellville and Gwinnett County is invited to attend as the Sanctuary and Handbell Choirs present a Festival of Lessons and Carols modeled after the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols of King’s College, Cambridge. The Lessons and Carols Order was originally conceived by E. W. Benson the first bishop of Truro, later Archbishop of Canterbury, for Christmas Eve 1880. In 1918, Eric Milner-White, Dean of King’s College, adapted the Order of E.W. Benson for use on Christmas Eve at King’s College.
Musical selections will include favorite carols, anthems and readings of the season that celebrate the birth of Christ. The prelude will begin at 5:15pm.
Please plan to come and celebrate the joyous season with this outstanding musical offering by the Sanctuary and Handbell choirs. Invite your friends, family and neighbors! Everyone is welcome.
