The Christian Fellowship is working in partnership with the Chaplaincy Centre to hold a Christmas carol service at the centre on Sunday Week Nine. The service will be free to attend and is open to all.
Though a free event, organisers will be requesting donations towards ‘Stop the Traffik’; a charity dedicated to raising awareness of human trafficking and helping protect those involved and persecute traffickers. As well as this, donations will be requested for ‘Christ Church Night Shelter’; a Christian charity that provides aid to the homeless in Lancaster, primarily during the winter period.
“This is a prime opportunity for those who may not usually come to church to come together, bringing flatmates and friends to sing and experience the Christmas message,” said Claire Wood, a student at Lancaster who is one of the people involved in organising the service. She added that she hoped people would see how the service can be relevant today.
The service is held annually at the University and those who have attended before can expect a similar experience this year. The service will follow a traditional format, consisting of nine lessons and gospels. Mulled wine and mince pies will be provided after the service.
