Christmas is well and truly on it’s way but it’s going to look quite different this year. We’ve been wracking our brains to work out ways that we can celebrate the birth of Jesus together while still following the ever-changing COVID 19 guidelines.

One of these ways is through our Christmas Choirs!

We’ve been hard at work trying to work out a way that we can safely do it this year and I think we’ve cracked it!


ADULT CHRISTMAS CHOIR

How’s it going to work?

The plan is to rehearse on two consecutive Sundays (22nd & 29th Nov, 3-4pm) on Zoom and then on the weekend of 5th & 6th Dec we’ll get people into church in small, socially distanced groups and film them singing. We’ll then edit all the video and audio together and, by the wonders of technology, it’ll look and sound like everyone’s singing together! We’ll then use that video as part of our Carol Service on 20th December.

Will it be COVID safe?

Yes. We’ve done a whole lot of thinking on how to make our buildings and events covid safe. For instance, on the recording days people will be singing in groups of no more than six. Everyone will need to wear a mask until they sing. Everyone will be socially distanced according to the current government guidelines. All equipment (microphones, etc) will be thoroughly disinfected between groups.

CHILDREN & YOUTH VIRTUAL CHRISTMAS CHOIR

How’s it going to work?

In kind of the same way we were putting together worship song videos during the first lockdown we will send out guide tracks and instructional videos which will teach you the song and help you record yourself singing. We’ll then edit all these videos together so it will look like everyone’s singing together! This video will form part of our Christmas Eve service.

Who’s it for?

Children and young people in year 3 – year 13. We’ve extended the age range a bit more this year.

When do you need the videos to be done by?

If you’d like to take part we’ll need all the videos in by Sunday 6th December.
