52 Carol Service at St Lawrence Jewry

Monday 8th December 2014

The Company held its Annual Carol Service at St Lawrence Jewry led by the Guild Vicar and our Honorary Chaplain, Canon David Parrott. The singing of the carols was led by the Sevenoaks School Girls Choir under its conductor Alexandra Kidgell. They sang five choir items beautifully, with solos from Ellie Bayne, Amanda Cottle and Julie Morris. The organist was Catherine Ennis, Director of Music at the church, who made the magnificant organ sparkle. Five lessons recounted the Christmas message and David gave an amusing and thought provoking address. We processed out to the Bach's In Dulce Jubilo (BWV 729) which always ends the Christmas Eve service from King's College, Cambridge. The evening concluded with mulled wine and mince pies. It was most encouraging to see a large congregation. I shall certainly remember it as one of the special events of my year.
