Joining together with friends old and new to sing the songs of Christmas is a time honoured way of entering into the Christmas season.
Community carol singing evokes memories for many of us. Singing from door to door. Gathering with family around the tree.
Have you had an opportunity to sing carols yet this year? Whether your answer is yes, or no, come to St. Peter’s, Comox for an informal afternoon of carol singing on Sunday, Dec. 11.
Christmas carols are beautiful songs of celebration, joy and hope.
There is good news to share. The word carol originally referred to a dance performed in a circle. Perhaps that is why singing carols often brings us so much joy. It is often difficult to sit still while you sing them.
A series of Christmas devotional readings link the carols this year. Themes of joy, hope and peace will be explored. Candles will be lit. Memories will be shared.
In all, it will be a lovely afternoon.
To complete the afternoon, a festive reception will follow in the church hall. Come nibble on Christmas treats and enjoy some good cheer.
This Christmas carol afternoon will begin at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 11.
This event is offered as a free gift to the community. Please come and join in the joy of the season. Non-perishable food will be received for sharing in Christmas hampers. St. Peter’s Church is located at 218 Church Street in Comox. For more information, call 250-339-6416.
