Special Services at St Paul’s during December 2019

From traditional to contemporary, there is something for everyone to enjoy at St Paul’s this December.

Our festive Christmas singalong on Sunday 8th December, is a hit with the whole family with songs both old and new and traditional carols being sung all washed down with warm mulled wine and Panetone.  Fr Leonard conducting “The Twelve Days of Christmas” is the real highlight of the evening.  There will be a 5€ entry charge for those aged 16yrs+  and a retiring collection.  Arrive early to obtain a seat!

Our Choral Evensong  with the Scola Cantorum takes place on 22nd December and the traditional service of Lessons and Carols on Christmas Eve brings a more reflective side to the season.

And for those of  you in good voice don’t forget the annual Messiah Singalong where you can sing out “Hallelujah” to your heart’s content!

“H adelphi mou- My sister” By Stavros Zoumboulakis

Various dates during December 2019, and January and February 2020 http://anglicanchurchathens.gr/events/category/st-pauls-calendar/2019-12/

(click here to view Calendar)
"Anyone who has not felt the pain will be a shallow and a silly person”

Periklis Moustakis directs Stavros Zoumboulakis’ experimental narrative “My Sister”.

Through the epilepsy of his sister, who sealed her life and, in another way, his own, Stavros Zoumboulakis wanted to talk about illness, pain, joy, faith and most of all about kindness and love. A text that is ultimately comforting. The author gives us a highly confessional and deeply personal narrative that reaches us through conversations with Vale, Levinas and Kamy as a major theological commentary, an existential and at the same time universal question on the subject and sickness.

Dora Stilianesi  plays the main role

Kali Malone Blog

KALI MALONE Taste the Music 2

Thursday 5th December 2019, 21.00

 

The American composer Kali Malone creates analogue and digital music sound, inviting listeners to listen to charming acoustic and synth sounds. The dark minimalism of Kali, ideally coexisting with the mystical space of the Anglican Church, creates the necessary condition for the audience to feel the unparalleled depth created by the coexistence of acoustic and synth instruments and the repetition of sound over an extended period of time.

 

The 5th of December promises an evening full of harmonious textures and central tunes for competent listeners.
