We are pleased to extend an invitation to you and your congregation to this year’s Carol Service in York Minster. This year’s Service is, again, in the Nave of York Minster, enabling us to celebrate Christmas in style!

We look forward to welcoming as many people as possible to the event which is the highlight of our school year: celebrating our Church School status and close links with York Minster in a beautiful and inspirational venue. We promise you a vibrant retelling of the Christmas story; some wonderful music with the opportunity for the congregation to join in. Mulled wine and mince pies will be available at the end of the service.

At this year’s Service we are delighted to welcome The Right Reverend Alison White, Bishop of Hull, who will be preaching for us. We will also be joined by the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress. The theme of the service is ‘The One Who Saves’; it contains a wide variety of musical, dance and drama items from students, the senior choir, junior choir, the community choir, orchestra, instrumentalists and will also include pupils from partner primary schools.
