Carols on the Lawn

Fun, food, entertainment, carols and the Christmas story

Saturday, 11th December 2021

This year we’re kicking off the festive season with “Carols on the Lawn” here onsite at Menai Anglican Church.

Everyone is welcome and there’s something for everyone. We’d love to see you there! Here’s what’s planned:

5pm: Family Fun

Our pre-program has something for all ages. The kids will love the jumping castle, petting zoo, fairy floss, games and craft. There’ll also be some entertainment on the stage from local community groups. Bring your picnic rug or outdoor chairs and enjoy a picnic dinner. The sausage sizzle and food stalls will have food available for purchase (bring along some cash).

6pm: Carols

We’ll sing some favourite carols together, and also hear about the Christmas story: A thrill of hope.

7-9pm: Twilight

As the sun sets we’ll enjoy a summer evening with music, dinner, dessert and coffee. Food stalls will be available to purchase food. Bring your picnic rug or chairs and relax on the lawn.
