Dig deep for Council of Churches Christmas appeal

THE Coffs Harbour Council of Churches will on Friday launch its Christmas Bowl Appeal.

Benny Littlejohn, a director of Act For Peace, the national body which organises the Christmas Bowl Appeal, will be the guest speaker at Friday night's service at the Uniting Church on the corner of Gordon and Vernon Sts.

The chairwoman of the Coffs Harbour Council of Churches, Pat Degens, said Mr Littlejohn would speak about the focus of this year's Act For Peace campaign.

Music will be provided by the St Augustine's Men's Choir, Salvation Army Brass Band and Timbrels, under the direction of Errol Grice, and Coffs City Choir, directed by Margaret Fisher.

There will be community singing of well known carols as well.

A Christmas bowl is being made specially for the occasion by the Uniting Church community, and a collection will take place during the service to launch the local Christmas Bowl Appeal.

The service will start at 7pm, but carols will be played from 6.30pm.
