On the week of carol services (Part 1).

This week is carol service week – all three CUs have a carol service going on, there’s a church carol service at the end of the week, and there’s also a mid-week carol service practice (since I seem to have accidentally found myself as a member of the church choir this year).

Tonight was the biggest of all, Durham CU carol service, held in the cathedral, with about 3000 people in attendance.

Michael Ots was the speaker and wonderfully and engagingly preached the gospel, the University Choral Society performed some beautiful music, and thousands of voices filled the 900 year old church. It’s a truly special event, and a great start to the season, especially when followed by mulled wine and mince pies in the world’s prettiest university college, University College, (also known as Castle, because it is actually located within Durham Castle). Unbeatable.

Tomorrow brings the delights of more carols, more mulled wine and mince pies, and more gospeliciousness.

In summary: Christmassy joys.
