Hope Dawns…

is a special online carol service that CMSI is currently producing for churches and groups throughout Ireland. The service films will be launched on 1st December and will be available to use throughout Advent.


The service features:

  • Stories of hope from the global Church

  • Specially recorded music from cathedral choirs
    & music groups across Ireland

  • Readings and prayers led by members of the Church of Ireland family

The service material (videos) will be posted on this page
as well as on CMSI's Vimeo page.

Viewing and using the service

Churches, groups and individuals are invited to participate in - or make use of - the Hope Dawns service in one of two ways:

  1. Join virtually with others across Ireland (and beyond) to watch and participate in the service at 8pm on 1st December. A link to the full service film will be posted by 7pm that day. CMSI will host an after service Zoom gathering following the service.

  2. Use the material for your own carol service. The full service film - and the individual segments - will be available to view or download for free from 2nd December. You can use these for your own services or for sharing with your congregations.

We are delighted to be joined by our friends from SAMS Ireland, who will also be contributing to the programme.

Further info & video trailers will appear here throughout November
