Call To Worship

Carol: Hark the herald angels sing

Children's Talk

Children's Song: Born is the King (It's Christmas!)

Prayers

Carol: Angels From The Realms of Glory

Most of the words of the following carol are likely to be familiar to you, although this version does include one or two verses that are no longer commonly sung.

Carol: Joy To The World

This video was made for the North Wales Baptist Association's Advent Calendar and includes BSL signing from Siân Whitton, a member of our congregation who has graciously permitted us to use it in this service.

Sermon: Joy To The World

This sermon includes two Bible passages, both available to read at Bible Gateway:

Hymn: Rejoice, The Lord Is King!
