This website (http://onlinecarols.posterous.com) is the home of the online 9 lessons and carols service which will take place at 2pm (London time) on Saturday 24th December 2011.
The service will consist of 22 posts/articles (like this one you’re reading) all presented by a different person and in different formats. What we are aiming to do is something that can only be done online. This has been a true collaboration of people from around the world so enjoy the different accents and styles of music!
If you would like to follow the service there are a number of ways you can do this:
You will need to be connected to the internet and have your speakers switched on. Most of the posts should be able to be viewed via a smartphone or iPad as well.
The simplest way to attend is to visit this website:
Each section of the service will be added as a post in the correct order – each post will have a title letting you know if it’s a reading, prayer or carol.
Read each post which will be either a reading, prayer or carol and press play on any media embedded within that post (there may be a video or an audio file to listen to).
When you have finished listening or reading, refresh your page by pressing your F5 key or clicking on the title of the site written in yellow on the left here.
If you want to respond to any of the posts please leave a comment at the bottom – it’ll be great to hear from you – do let us know where you’re from as well!
