MBC’s Carol Service hits all the right notes

16 December 2019

What better way for a church to continue it’s already buoyant Christmas programme than with a service of carols and readings. And that’s exactly what happened here at MBC last Sunday evening. With a ten piece orchestra and almost twice that number singing in the choir the hour long service was a skilfully blended mix of ancient and modern.

With Rachel, James, Joan, Ben, Kofi and Joe sharing the narration and with a powerful address from Nathan in which he urged us all to focus on relationships and embrace the mess that Christmas creates just, he said, as everyone did in Bethlehem, a packed church lapped up this so well known yet so so precious message.

One particularly memorable highlight of the Service was a short but amazingly thought provoking contribution called Not Just a Baby which our young people presented.

Naturally no self respecting Carol Service finishes without the congregation continuing their time together by sharing mince pies and mulled wine. So in addition to us thanking our ministers – Graham and Shona, our brilliant musicians, our wonderful choristers – led once again by Claire, our ever willing stewards and our genius tech team let’s (if only metaphorically) also give a huge round of applause to our small but highly efficient kitchen team and their considerably younger helpers.
