The story of Jesus’ birth comes alive through word and carols. In this service, the ministers serve as narrators and tell the story of the birth of Jesus as children in the congregation participate in various ways. With classic Christmas carols and an age old story, this service is rooted in time-honored traditions. Any child who wants to participate as a shepherd or angel in our nativity pageant will have the opportunity to do so.
Lessons and Carols Christmas Eve Service

A traditional service with full choir and candlelight modeled after the service offered at Truro Cathedral in 1880. The King's Chapel Choir serves as our guide, as we hear again the message of the angels told through scripture and song. The candlelit sanctuary helps us to keep vigil as we celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace. Be sure to arrive early. This is our most popular service of the church year.
Christmas Day Service with Holy Communion

King's Chapel was the first known Christian church to celebrate Christmas Day in New England. In 1686, Boston Anglicans (and curious onlookers) gathered to celebrate Holy Communion. This tradition continues to this day.
