Shankill Parish Lurgan Christmas Tree Festival

06 Dec 2018 — 09 Dec 2018

Shankill posterYou are warmly invited to a Christmas Tree Festival in Shankill Parish Church, Lurgan, from Thursday 6 to Sunday 9 December. 

Exploring the theme Jesus Is…, the Festival will display around 75 Christmas trees – real, artificial and sculpted, all interpreting an aspect of the person of Jesus through Scripture and through the well–known words of Christmas carols and hymns. The trees will be decorated by a range of groups and individuals from within the parish and local community. 

The Festival opens with a lighting ceremony on Thursday 6 December at 7.00 pm when there will be an opportunity to informally browse the trees against a background of festive music. On Friday 7, the church will be open from 10.00 am – 9.30 pm, Saturday 8 from 10.00 am – 6.00 pm, and on Sunday 9 from 2–5.00 pm. 

There will be two special services on Sunday with Bishop Ken Good preaching at 10.30 am and Bishop Harold Miller speaking at the guest service at 7.00 pm.

All donations at the Festival will benefit Lurgan YMCA, PIPS Upper Bann and Shankill Parish.
