A Folk Nine Lessons And Carols 2018

Here it is! This year's, much anticipated, Folk Nine Lessons and Carols, a service of scripture spoken solemnly and carols from the folk tradition sung raucously. You are more likely to hear these carols performed in a pub than in a church. So pour yourself a pint of heavy or a glass of mulled wine, press play and enjoy.

A Folk Nine Lessons And Carols 2017

To be honest I don't enjoy the sort of Christmas carols they sing in church. I especially hate "Silent Night" which I literally find painful. Therefore, I am hardly going to inflict such tedious Victoriana on visitors to Saint Laika's. Instead, as is tradition, I have cobbled together a fine serving of carols from the folk traditions of various parts of the world mixed up with a load of lessons from God's own Bible.

Enjoy.

Holy Communion For The Feast Of Mary Magdalene

When Jesus said her name, Mary Magdalene recognised her friend and teacher. In the sacrament of holy communion Jesus calls each one of us into his presence so that we may know him as our friend and teacher. As we eat the bread and drink from the cup we are one with Christ as a bride is one with the bridegroom.

At Saint Laika's everyone is welcome to take communion and be in communion, with each other and with God. There are no exceptions. So, come, join us.

If you want to physically partake of communion you will require a small piece of bread and a small amount of drink (preferably made from grapes and containing alcohol).

Holy Communion For The Fourth Sunday Of Easter

In the sacrament of holy communion we, the people of God, gather together as sheep gather together in one flock. We are led by Jesus Christ as the sheep are led by their shepherd and we know him in the bread and in the wine. He is the good shepherd who is always with the people of his flock.

Holy Communion For The Third Sunday Of Easter

Sometimes it is extremely difficult to recognise the divine in our lives. We can become so despondent in the face of all the evil and human failure in the world that we just stumble along through life with no hope or direction. But Jesus is here beside us and it is only our foolishness that hides him from us. Fortunately, we do not have to rely on our own poor perception to recognise our lord for, in the sacrament of holy communion, in the breaking of the bread, he reveals himself to us. We are witnesses to his resurrection and we are sent out into the world to proclaim the good news with a new enthusiasm and willing hearts.
