Church members across Scotland are being encouraged to take part in a nationwide Christmas Carol concert on their doorsteps this Sunday, 20th December.
The initiative has been led by Rev Mike Goss, Church of Scotland minister of Barry Parish Church linked with Carnoustie Church in Angus, and the appeal is for individuals and families across the country to gather in front of their homes for ‘Doorstep Carols’ on Sunday 20th December at 6pm and ensure it is anything but a Silent Night.
We might not be able to do the traditional door to door caroling this year, but this event, featuring five well-known carols, would remind people that Christmas is not cancelled, serve as a “beacon of light in the darkness” and provide a signal of hope for the future.
Mr Goss said, “Doorstep Carols is an opportunity for people to come together in small numbers in a socially distanced and responsible way as part of a wider community across Scotland and celebrate this special time of year.” He continued, “This event is an opportunity to do that and will help capture the joy of song at this special time of year and remind us of the true meaning of Christmas which is principally about hope in Jesus born to be our Saviour.”
So limber up these vocal chords, and get ready to join in on Sunday 20th at 6pm. You can download the carol sheet from this link on our website.
