A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols was first held on Christmas Eve 1918 at King’s College Chapel in Cambridge, England. It was planned by Eric Milner-White, who at the age of 34 had just been appointed Dean of King’s. After his experience as an army chaplain, he was convinced that the Church of England needed a more imaginative worship. The service includes 9 short Bible readings, interspersed with Christmas Carols. A revision of the Order of Service was made in 1919, involving rearrangement of the lessons, and from that date the service has always begun with the hymn ‘Once in Royal David’s City’. It is an event that the entire family can enjoy and further enrich your worship experience of Advent!
