Ser­vice to cel­e­brate Christ­mas story

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

With Christ­mas Day just over two weeks away, a town carol ser­vice will take place in Fort Wil­liam to­mor­row (Fri­day De­cem­ber 7).

The ser­vice be­gins at 6.30pm at Dun­cans­burgh MacIn­tosh Church. Lochaber Com­mu­nity Wind band will sup­ply the mu­sic at this child-friendly, fam­ily event.

Rev­erend Richard Bax­ter said: ‘The aim is to have a cel­e­bra­tion of the Christ­mas story with well-known car­ols and read­ings in a re­laxed for­mat.

‘We hope this will be­come a reg­u­lar part of Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions for peo­ple around the town from all faith back­grounds and none, so it will be dif­fer­ent from all the ex­ist­ing events around the churches.’

There will be a col­lec­tion at the ser­vice for Lochaber Food­bank, which meets the needs of some of the most vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple in the com­mu­nity not just at Christ­mas but through­out the year.

Every­one is wel­come to come along and join in.
