Williamwood’s Top-ten Christmas Carols

cloud

Have you ever wondered what the most popular Christmas hymns & carols are? Well at Williamwood this year we will discover our top-ten most favourite!!!

Christmas Carols are loved by many and we only get the chance to sing them for around 4 weeks every year. Some are long and some are short, some are old some are new! It is our intention to publish the result and use these results at some of our services during December.

So, get your thinking caps on! What is YOUR most favourite Christmas Carol??

Hark the herald? O come O come Emmanuel? Away in a Manager? Starry night? The list is endless! You only have one vote though!

Use the contact us option to tell us.

Thanks, Alan Mathew
