Happy July’s Rudolph Day! (Rudolph Day’s are the 25th of each month – an excuse for Christmas fans like me to be Christmassy all the year round…) AND… today I’m also sharing with you my NEW Christmas Project – An Online Christmas Carol Service!
I had the idea for this new project on last Boxing Day (26th December) and I’ve been working on it since then and today it’s going properly live!
The Online/Virtual Carol Service is meant to be very easy to use and user friendly, and lasts about 35 minutes.
I hope it might be useful to people all over the world who aren’t able to get out to ‘live’ Carol Service this year and beyond (for whatever reason). And it will also allow anyone to ‘go to’ a Christmas service whenever they want!
The service features seven traditional Christmas carols and five Bible readings telling the Christmas story. All the words to the carols and readings are on the site and can also be downloaded as a print friendly PDF.
The music/carols for the service come from an old (out of copyright) album called ‘Christmas In England – Carol Service In A Country Church’ (RCA Victor – LPM-1568) made in 1957. Although made for the US market, it does have the feel of a rural English country church carol service (I live in the English countryside and have been to many rural carol services!).
I’m also planning to make the service into a video on YouTube (like being a glorified slideshow with audio) but that’s not been put together fully yet!
So please go and have a look at the Online Carol Service and have a sing – it’s NEVER too early for Christmas carols!!!
