About Christmas Wonders

A unique collection of ten original songs and Bible readings, designed to be appropriate for presenting the Christmas Story in different contexts and settings:

As a Christmas concert

  • Performing the collection of songs in the book order tells the Christmas story in music
  • Can be enhanced by adding the recorder and/or percussion parts

As a Christmas Service

  • A ready-made service including eight Bible readings, ten songs and a prayer
  • Not all songs need to be performed in order to tell the story, so it is possible to 'pick and choose'
  • A ready-made service including eight Bible readings, ten songs and a prayer
  • It would be appropriate to add traditional Christmas Carols to supplement the service
  • Three of the songs have optional recorder parts, and there are also some suggestions for use of percussion
  • Christmas Service can be combined with mimed play (below)

As a mimed play

  • Suggestions for performing the story in mime

For collective worship/assemblies
