Celebrate Christmas and make a difference

St. George’s United Church is pleased to announce its second annual Community Christmas Sing-a-long on Sunday Dec. 17 at 3 p.m.

Featuring community musicians and the St. George’s choir, it will be an opportunity to sing your heart out to all of your sacred and secular holiday favourites. Bring grandma, grandpa, the kids and your friends for an afternoon of musical fun and joy.

Following the sing-a-long, all are invited to join in community time with hot chocolate, mulled apple juice and festive treats.

Admission is by donation, with all proceeds going to the St. George’s Drop-in, a year-round refuge providing refreshments, conversation, and friendship for those in need.

Located in the heart of downtown Courtenay, St. George’s United Church (505 6th St., Courtenay) is a spiritually vibrant, inclusive, justice-seeking community of faith that celebrates over a century of changed lives. Its vision is to be a Christian Church that is a beacon of God’s love and hope in the community, doing so through unconditional welcome, spiritual transformation, and reaching out in love for the common good.
