Nine Lessons and Carols

Nine Lessons and Carols

Join St. Martin's in their annual Nine Lessons & Carols followed by Christmas Libations in the Church Hall.

A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is the Christmas Eve service held in King's College Chapel. The Festival was introduced in 1918 to bring a more imaginative approach to worship. It was first broadcast in 1928 and is now broadcast to millions of people around the world.

The service includes carols and readings from the Bible. The opening carol is always 'Once in Royal David's City', and there is always a new, specially commissioned carol.
