University Carol Service 2020: Order of Service

This is the order of service for the University Carol Service 2020. It contains details of the readings, carols and prayers used in the service.

Welcome to the University of Bath Carol Service 2020. We invite you to enter the mystery and depth of the Christmas story, told again tonight through specially chosen words and music. In the Christmas story heaven touches earth. The world is changed. It is a story of wonder and surprise, of God coming towards us, and becoming one of us, through a vulnerable human baby born in a simple stable. The birth of Christ has been recounted for over two thousand years; it is the story that makes the difference, the story of the Word becoming flesh and dwelling among us. It is both history, and a living story for today. God is now with us.
