AT YOUR SERVICE - CHRISTMAS DAY SPECIAL - 2022

At Your Service

Sunday, 25 December 2022 - 1 hour 1 minute

Celebrating the reason for the season - the birth of Jesus Christ - in words and music.
In this Christmas Day specially-extended programme, I'm joined by Richard Littledale - a recently-retired Baptist pastor, who is also a published author, and regular broadcaster on BBC Radio 2 and Radio 4.        Richard shares stories from his ministry, his family life, and his work as an author - and explains why he stands alongside all those who cannot be merry and bright at this time.
The programme is packed full of carols and Christmas music - most of it from local churches and choirs, and includes another chance to hear some vintage recordings!
