The much loved BBC Radio Lancashire Countywide Carol Service, ‘Lancashire Sings Christmas’ is back this year in a new slot and time.

It will go out on December 18 at noon, live from their Blackburn studios.

The focus this year is on carers at Christmas across the range of care in the community; in hospitals and hospices, care homes and those who are carers at home.

The programme will also highlight aspects of social care typified by the Salvation Army and the role of local policing and other services.

Holding the programme at midday will open new opportunities for those churches and groups who already hold luncheon clubs, warm hubs and spaces over lunchtime.

If that’s your church or group – please consider plugging the radio into your PA system and sharing in Lancashire Sings Christmas as ‘Carers Sing Christmas’!

There will still be all the much-loved elements of this programme: with carols; celebrating the birth of Jesus as well as many heartwarming stories of caring at Christmas.

You can download a carol sheet and a PowerPoint here.

The carols all link in with the Bethlehem Carol Sheet for those who support the charity ‘Embrace the Middle East’.

“Carers Sing Christmas” is an invitation to tune into Radio Lancashire to share in a service of carols, readings, stories of hope and healing in the various parts of our wonderful county of Lancashire as across the County we reach out to all those seeking to make the best of life together in the time of crisis.
Pray that we may all receive afresh the warmth and hospitality that God, throught the gift of the Jesus the Christchild, gives to the whole world walking in the darkness of these times.
How to tune in:
