There is nothing like a Christmas carol to capture the joy of the holiday season, reminding us of God’s great salvation and bringing back happy memories of all the times and places we’ve sung them. Children love Away In A Manger and Silent Night and no Carols by Candlelight service ends without a rousing rendition of O Come All Ye Faithful or Hark The Herald Angels Sing. Many countries have their own unique festive transitions and Christmas songs. What is your favourite? Tell us in the comments section or on our social media!
Whatever your best-loved carol or Christmas song, we hope to air it on GOD TV this Christmas as we bring you five different carol services from across the globe. From Thursday December 21 GOD TV brings you Christmas greetings from different churches as Christians celebrate all that Jesus means, both at His birth 2000 years ago and today.
