The Les Amis Choir will be performing festive carols in front of a live audience for the first time since 2019.
The residents and service users of Les Amis are enthusiastically rehearsing their carols and cannot wait to perform for those attending the Christmas service.
Last year the carol service was filmed due to concerns about rising cases of Covid-19. There are no limits this year and a congregation is expected fill the Town Church for the annual festive singing and signing service on Saturday 3rd December at 3pm.
Jason Loveless, Head of Support Services and Choir Coordinator, said: “Last year was the first time we had been back in the Town Church since the pandemic and although it wasn’t the full experience, the choir thoroughly enjoyed themselves. As always, they put in long hours rehearsing for this and we are extremely grateful for the support we receive from the church and from those that come every year. They will be performing all your favourites, including Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.”
The Les Amis Carol Service has helped to mark the start of Christmas for many years and the charity is passionate about keeping the tradition alive. There will be a retiring collection raising money to support the work of the charity.
Shaun Findlay, Managing Director of Les Amis, added: “It’s been a tough period for our residents and staff, and we are all really looking forward to getting together for the first time in two years to celebrate the start of the Christmas season in the best way possible. Jason and the Choir have worked exceptionally hard, and I am really looking forward to their performance of Christmas favourites and singing and signing along with them.”
The service will be led by The Very Reverend Mike Keirle, Dean of Jersey, and Reverend James Porter and the Les Amis Choir will be accompanied by Malcolm L’Amy.
