O Christmas tree
O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree. How lovely are thy branches!
This week we had a very welcome arrival, our magnificent 40ft Christmas tree.
As you can see by the video below, even with such a massive building to house it, it is no mean feat getting our huge tree into place each year.
It is worth the effort for our spectacular annual service for the whole family on the second Sunday of Advent 'Lighting of the Tree and Blessing of the Crib'. This Sunday, 9th December, at 3 pm.
A service especially suitable for children and families with the Great Choir and a live Crib. Sing along with the Cathedral Choir the well-known hymns and carols.
During the service, the tree is lit and everyone gathers around the crib with its ‘live’ figures, as it is blessed for Christmas. Hope to see you there!
