Record Breaking Carol Sing

The Bridge Church will join new attempt on Guinness World Record for ‘Carol Singing’

Churches Together in Otley plan to take part in a new nationwide attempt to smash the Guinness World Record for the largest number of Christmas carol singers – singing at the same time.

The current record was set up last year when churches across the UK and abroad attracted a total of 18,114 carol singers to sing five classic carols in unison – beating the previous record of just 14,100 established by Disney in 2009.

Churches Together in Otley will join in this year’s record-breaking attempt at 7-00pm on Sunday, December 16th when, like last year, the five selected carols will be sung in churches up and down the country. They are Silent Night, O Come All Ye Faithful, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Away in a Manger, and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.

Premier Christian Radio, which is coordinating the national attempt, will also play the five carols on the radio, enabling local churches to use the broadcast as their backing music and assisting nationwide unison.

“Last year’s record-breaking attempt brought many people into churches who were not regular visitors, and served as a timely reminder that Christmas starts with Christ,” said Peter Kerridge, CEO of Premier Christian Radio.  “We received many positive reports from churches telling us they were full to overflowing and what an enjoyable evening it had been for all concerned.”

“We would like to invite everyone from our local community to join us in the carol singing record attempt on December 16th, it will undoubtedly be a lot of fun to be part of a national challenge while enjoying festive carols in our local church.”

Premier Christian Radio is Britain’s largest Christian broadcaster.
