Christmas Tree Festival
The tree festival which was running from the 30th of November until the 2nd of December culminating on Sunday the 3rd of December. It was a huge success raising a large amount of money which has been donated to the Lodging House Mission. A charity which does an amazing job throughout Glasgow working closely with those most in need. Our Christmas tree festival featured over 25 trees sponsored and decorated by local charities, businesses, schools, groups who hire our halls and church organisations. All of the trees were decorated beautifully and transformed our building (The sanctuary featured above). There was live music performed throughout the festival, performances included Hollybrook Academy choir, A performance by Poppins Kindergarten which the First Minister thoroughly enjoyed, a string quartet, allowing for a reflective time and our very own church choir. The First Minister Nicola Sturgeon who is also our MP visited on Friday enjoying the trees, live music and performances; click here for an article about the visit. It was amazing to see everyone who attended and we hope to see you all again soon. Of course thank you to everyone who volunteered to help and who made this possible as well as everyone who helped to organise the event, it was a very special time, allowing us not only to enjoy the Christmas trees and music but to reflect upon this time of year and its importance in the Church calendar.
