You can use these Christmas Carol videos in any worship services, whether physically gathered, via Zoom-style chat, edited into a YouTube or Facebook live type service, or any other non-profit setting. Scroll down for a variety of styles - contemporary, traditional, lyric videos and live films. 

They are all public domain songs, and the recordings remain the copyright of the artists. We are so grateful to all of the people who have provided music and videos for free, and we pray these will be a blessing to you.

We are not asking any payment or royalties on these resources. If you want to make a "thank you" gift, we'd like to point you towards an amazing charity in Sara & Sam's home town of Luton. Azalea offers the love and transformation of Jesus to women caught in sexual exploitation. Any gift will make a huge difference. Sam has been volunteering weekly at Azalea througout 2020-21 and has witnessed so many lives turned around. Find out more on their website.
