Christmas Unwrapped

Sunday December 9th - 4:00pm - 6:00pm

- Unrehearsed Nativity, Songs, Worship and Food -


This was for everyone - not just for children!  A traditional Nativity, but told as we unwrapped presents!  The service, led by our minister Rev Debbie Borda, was followed by tea.  We invited everyone to come dressed as a shepherd or sheep or angel or king or simply come as yourself, and we drew in a good crowd made up of our Messy Church families and several of our regular Sunday morning attendees!
