Chapel Decoration, Christmas 2018

Each year the Parish holds a 5.30pm Christmas Eve Family Service. This service has grown over the years to become the largest of five Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services held in the parish.

As part of the service each year the Chapel at St James’ is decorated according to the service theme and this year the inspiration for this and the theme of “light” came from the book ”The Nativity” by Julie Vivas. Brightly lit angels and a nativity scene were on show at the end of the service for those who attended to enjoy and to illustrate the Christmas Story, and the chapel remains decorated until a week after Christmas. Parishioners will be pleased to learn that the angels have now found a home in the body of the church until the end of January.

Each year it is a team effort and we would like to recognise the efforts of those who assisted this year in the creation of the angels and set up (and breakdown) of the Chapel: Bron Robertson (artist extraordinaire), Paulene Gibbons, Helen Willberg, Paula Baynes, Londyn Williams, Sheldon Williams, Chunge You, and Murray Wills.

The service was led Rev Murray Wills with the assistance of Rev Chris Low as narrator.
