Magic mu­sic fills the air at ser­vice

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE an­nual ec­u­meni­cal Eidsvold Com­mu­nity Carols ser­vice was held at St Mark's Angli­can Church re­cently.

The carols were well at­tended de­spite other Christ­mas breakups on the same night.

An­thony Coates, of Eidsvold Sta­tion, in­tro­duced Rev­erend Carol Palmer, the new priest who pre­sented a Christ­mas mes­sage.

There­was a tree aswell as pur­ple flo­ral dis­plays to re­mind eve- ry­one of the pre-Christ­mas sea­son.

“It­was in­spir­ing to see fam­i­lies at­tend­ing with their chil­dren,” con­gre­ga­tion mem­ber Jean Wede­meyer said.

“Small gifts were pre­sented by Rev Carol and glow­ing can­dles added to the spirit of the night.”

Mar­garet Adams ac­com­pa­nied the carols on the or­gan and the Crilly fam­ily re­turned to Eidsvold from Bris­bane to visit fam­ily and play tunes and carols on vi­o­lin, cello and flutes.

“Their beau­ti­ful mu­sic graced those present with time to re­flect on the true mean­ing of Christ­mas, away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of Christ­mas shop­ping,” Rev Palmer said.

“May Christ­mas 2012 bring you God’s grace and peace, what­ever your cir­cum­stances; may it be for you a time of hope, joy, love and peace.”
