North Wembley Community Outreach
4th January 2018
North Wembley Community Seventh-day Adventist Church (NWCSDAC) took to the local streets on a bitterly cold evening on Saturday 23 December to bless the local neighbourhood with its inaugural Christmas Carol street service.
The outreach was led by the Personal Ministries team who had previously led similar monthly outreach programmes known as 'Rock the Block', were supported by many members and friends of the NWCSDAC.
As they progressed along Sudbury Avenue, where the church is located, the carol singers stopped strategically to render such favourites as 'O Come, All Ye Faithful', 'O Little Town of Bethlehem', 'The First Noel', 'Little Donkey', 'Joy to the World', 'While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night' and 'Go, Tell it on the Mountain'.
Signed Christmas cards were posted to our neighbours and also given to those we met along the streets.
The evening culminated with further renditions outside the church doors where mince pies and chocolates were served to the community.
NWCSDAC hope to continue this carol service for many years to come.
