Carols with Compassion: A Virtual Carol Service in Partnership with TBN

At a time when we're not sure how Christmas will look, and we're facing the prospect of carol services being cancelled for fear of infection spreading, we're offering a free virtual carol concert to celebrate our unchanging God.


Airing on Sunday 6 December at 8pm, this hour-long carol service will be uplifting and faith-building. Together we’ll celebrate the hope of the Christmas message with heart-warming Christmas carol singing and Bible readings in a traditional church setting with a contemporary twist.


Our Christmas carol service line-up

If you’re looking for Christmas carol service ideas to help you celebrate Jesus’ birth this year, Carols with Compassion will be a blend of great contemporary Christian music and traditional carols. The fantastic line-up includes:
