Parish Carols & Midnight Mass

Here are details of our Christmas Services at St Stephen Walbrook, to which all are welcome:

Parish Carols by Candlelight – Wednesday 14 December, 6.00pm

‘Carols for All and Blessing of the Crib’ by Candlelight. A traditional candlelit Carol Service. The great occasion when neighbouring businesses and friends of St Stephen Walbrook come together to celebrate Christmas. Music will be led by the St Stephen's Voices with organist Joe Sentance and there will be much-loved carols to sing, including 'Once in Royal David's City, While shepherds watched their flocks by night, See amid the winter's snow, Away in a manger and Hark the Herald Angels sing'. Choir carols include 'Sir Christemas' and Bethlehem Down'. The service will also include ‘Sir Christèmas’ – Matthias, ‘Bethlehem Down’ – Warlock, and ‘Gaudete’ - arr. Jenkins. Last year, the church was packed so do arrive early to ensure you get a seat. Mince pies and mulled wine.

Midnight Mass – Saturday 24 December, 11.30pm

Join us for the first Communion of Christmas where St Stephen’s Voices and organist Joe Sentance will lead us with ‘Missa Brevis in D, K194’ – Mozart and ‘Sussex Carol’ - arr. Ledger. The service will be followed by mince pies and hot drinks.
