Chistmas Carols logo depicting a Christmas star.

Welcome to join the Christmas Carols on Sunday, 13 December at 4 pm. This year the traditional event will be arranged virtually via YouTube at https://youtu.be/EOIXNZAXuks

You’ll be able to sing along English, Finnish and German carols this year, and enjoy music performances and Bible readings also in other languages.

We pre-recorded the service on 11 December in smaller groups at St. Luke’s church in Oulu. We ran out of time to add all of the texts to the video. To sing along, consult the texts hereafter, or (at least partly) in the description section at the YouTube video.

Our world and works have all kinds of limitations. Jesus came into this world so that we may be healed and rest in Him. May the carols and music warm your hearts and bring you joy! With lots of thanks for Christ our Saviour :-)
