Huon Anglican Church is gearing up for a busy Christmas season, with a number of events coming up over the next few weeks which the community is warmly invited to.
Our Christmas celebrations kick off on Saturday, December 17th at 5pm with a special children’s Christmas service at St James, Ranelagh. Minister of the Church, Rev John McQuillan said, ‘the children from our Sunday School are particularly excited about this special service. They have been rehearsing a Nativity play for a number of weeks now.’ As well as a carol-singing service, there will be a jumping castle, free BBQ, face painting and donkey rides. Parents and grandparents are more than welcome to bring their children along for a 5pm start.
Many people in the community prefer a more traditional and reflective time at Christmas. For those night-owls out there, there’ll be an 11pm service on Christmas Eve at St James, with midnight supper to follow. On Christmas Day, there will be a 9.30am service at St James. All are welcome.
A free community Christmas lunch will again be run on Christmas Day at 21 Wilmot Rd, Huonville. Last year almost 100 people gathered to share the day together. If you’d like to help out or just attend, you’re more than welcome. We do ask for RSVPs however, to email@example.com or by leaving a message on 6264 2977.
As the busy silly season ramps up, you’re invited to come along and reflect and give thanks with us as we remember the birth of Jesus. Even if you’ve never been to church before of haven’t been for many years, we’d love to have you. For more information, find Huon Anglican on Facebook, visit huonanglican.org.au or phone 6264 2977.
