This December is going to be different! Normally at St Paul’s we would welcome over 1,500 people through our doors, sadly not in 2020.

You may not be able to join us in our building but you can still join with hundreds of others in being part of our Christmas Celebrations by being part of our Virtual Community Carol Singing.

Video yourself singing along to well known carols, send in your recordings and we will put them all together make make something really special.

Here’s how to join in:

  • Choose one or more (you can choose all of them!) of the carols below.
  • Download the backing track and words
  • Use your smartphone or other camera and video yourself singing along to the backing track.
  • You can video yourself or your whole family – it’s up to you!
  • If you are videoing one or two people have your camera in portrait orientation, if you are videoing three or more have it in landscape.
  • Once you’ve got your recordings upload them to use using the link below.
