Go to a Carol Service

Baubles and Music

We love singing carols but this year going along in person is a bit tricky. The good news is that many churches and charities are streaming services live online instead. Most are free, some you need to register ahead, others you can just join at the time.

There are lots around - check and see what your local church or favourite charity is doing by searching by name online. Or join one of these big events, which promise to be magical...

Connectors' Tips and Ideas

Jean McG

Every year, my friend comes and stay and we go to sing carols at my church. This year, we’re both staying home, but we’re going to a carol service together but online. That means the world to me.
