Festive fun event

CHRIST Church, Burbage is to be transformed into a winter wonderland in the run up to the festive season.

A variety of events are taking place at the church, including an acoustic guitar concert by Richard Taylor on December 14 at 7.30pm, a carol service followed by the switching-on of the memorial lights on the outside Christmas tree on December 16 at 9.30am, and a concert by Burbage Band on December 19 at 7.30pm.

Food and presents for the needy in Buxton will once again be collected in church during the Secret Santa appeal. Decorated boxes for the food and a dedicated Christmas tree where presents for children can be left will be available.

The church is open for viewing on December 15, 22 and 29 from 12 noon to 3pm.

The Christmas walk will take place on December 29, starting at Burbage Institute at 10.30am, with mince pies and coffee. Bacon and egg baps will be served afterwards.
