As long term readers could possibly guess, I occasionally find Christmas Church services kinda… samey. Awesome, but you kinda know what you’re getting with a carol service. Then your church hosts a carol service in the local Ikea.
Makes me wonder, where should Church people sing Christmas Carols, outside a Church building?
A random shop in town. If tuneful enough, put out a collection box or something. Turn it into busking for the Church Roof Fund.
A Football Stadium. Do it at the same night as your local Uni CU, and claim the crowd as your own.
A pub. Be filled with the spirit this Christmas…
Your local Ikea. Because Ikea meatballs and chocolate are awesome. Please note. Don’t have the meatballs with the chocolate.
A Stable. With animals. And animal smells.
A busy train station. Because no one needs, yet more people on the platform, like a stressed commuter.
The local garden centre. You could hide and sing amongst the Christmas Tree’s.
Public Toilets. Flash mob and carol singular toilet cubical. Wait for someone to push the cubical open before you all start singing.
A lift. Fit a tiny band, in a lift. Encourage people to join in the carols as they travel between floors.
Randomly start singing Christmas Carols in your local supermarket. Perhaps something like this?
