Bannockburn churches’ Why Christmas event

December 2 2015The combined churches of Bannockburn hosted a “Why Christmas?” dinner in November.

Some 150 people turned up to enjoy Christmas dinner, carol singing, the Nativity Story told with chocolate bars, and a Christmas video of Nicky Gumbel from Alpha, Holy Trinity Brompton.

“The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all, and hopefully gave both Christians and non Christian people pause to think about why we celebrate Christmas,” said vicar the Revd Elizabeth Bufton.

“The evening was a great witness to the community, costs were covered by donations and partly sponsored by our local op shop as a giving back to the community for all their generous support.”
