Celebrate Christmas @ Belair Uniting

Mary & the Shepherds, Advent 2
Belair Uniting Church
made by Belair youth & Sue
This random artistic merry Christmas post is an invitation to celebrate Christmas in one of three creative story and carols gatherings with my community of faith.


Christmas Eve Drama & Carols: The Christmas story will be told this year using the tapestry nativity created by our youth, with the help of some of the adults, during 2013. Rev Sarah will narrate a poetic version of the story she has written for the occasion, and we will sing plenty of carols! Come and enter the story of Jesus' birth again, and invite the light of hope and peace to be born in you once more.
6.30 pm, 24 December 

Christmas Eve Carols & Contemplation: The tapestry nativity will be created by us as we reflect on the characters in the Christmas story. As we approach midnight, we will light candles, welcoming the light of Christ into our hearts and our world again with hope and joy. A contemplative reading of the stories and singing of carols.
11.30 pm, 24 December 

Christmas Day Story & Carols: O Come all ye faithful - come and adore the Christ-child, born this happy morning! Celebrate with Joseph the safe arrival of the family in Bethlehem; wonder with Mary at the miracle of this child; and sing heartily the songs of Christmas joy and peace.
9.00 am, 25 December

Wherever you celebrate Christmas, may the hope, joy, peace and love of the story be lit again deep within, a light to shine through you into the world.
