What is Carols with Compassion?
The theme of Carols with Compassion is ‘An unexpected Christmas’.
Twelve months ago none of us could have foreseen that this Christmas would be so dramatically different: Grandparents unable to see their grandchildren’s smiles as they open their presents; families celebrating with each other from behind a face mask, if at all; carol services banned for fear of the spread of infection.
At a time when we’re not sure exactly how we can mark Christmas, Carols with Compassion offers people the chance to come together – virtually – to celebrate Christmas, sing our favourite carols and remember that although our circumstances may be unfamiliar, the good news of Christmas is unchanged.
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.
When will Carols with Compassion air?
Carols with Compassion will premiere Wednesday 2nd December, 7:30pm on TBN UK (Freeview channel 65).
Then we’re excited to share Carols with Compassion on Compassion UK social media channels Sunday 6 December, 8pm. Visit Compassion UK’s Facebook, Instagram and Youtube and follow us to receive reminders of the broadcast nearer the time.
We’re also encouraging church leaders by offering them a download of the event to share as part of their own Christmas service after the 6 December.
