Filed under: News — Heather Leathley @ 10.01 am

Staff and students are invited to the Christmas Carol service on Monday 11 December in Sub-Zero off Square 3. Refreshments start at 7 pm with the service starting at 7.30 pm.

Members of different student societies will lead the singing, including the University show choir, the Jesus Alive Fellowship and the Chinese Christian Fellowship.

Edge Hotel School student Thomas Watkiss who has put the service together said: “It’s a truly multi-cultural event. Everyone I have asked is very keen to take part and it promises to be a vibrant occasion.”

President of the Students’ Union Zoe Garshong said: “I believe that the spirit of Christmas is about unity and bringing people from all walks of life together. That’s what the story of the first Christmas illustrates, the wise men and the shepherds coming together from different backgrounds to celebrate.

“That’s what this carol service is all about, we are trying something new, mixing traditional carols with a modern day twist. It will be amazing to see all the different societies coming together.”
