Music this Advent

This Advent the anthems in our 10am Sunday Eucharist will come from Disney and DreamWorks. As well as telling many Christian stories, Disney and DreamWorks movies have, over the years, engaged with implicit Christian themes in more subtle ways, such as: to believe in yourself, to chase your dreams, and to have courage and be kind. Each week in Advent the choir will be singing a song from an animated film.
