Follow the Star - Join the Song, is the Church of England's theme for Christmas this year. 

The shepherds were astonished to find the night sky filled with angels singing God’s praise.
And before long they were singing, too ...

Centuries later, singing is still central to how many of us celebrate Christmas.
We invite you this Christmas to follow the star, journey to the manger, join the song and come into the presence of Jesus Christ.

This year the Church of England have published a new setting of the Carol, "The First Nowell," to a new tune and mostly the same words.

Our Choir and some of the school children in Cam are learning this new song to sing with us this Christmas come along and Join the Song.

The First Nowell

And by the light of that same star,
Three Wise Men came from country far;
To seek for a king was their intent,
And to follow the star wherever it went:

Nowell, Nowell,
Nowell, Nowell,
Born is the King of Israel.

‘Nowell’ is an Early Modern English name for Christmas – from the French name for the season, ‘Noël’. It appears in the refrain (or chorus) of many traditional carols. 

The First Nowell
Words: Traditional English carol of Cornish origin
Music: Bob Chilcott (A new commission from the Church of England) 2023
