EIGHTEEN ‘stunning’ Christmas trees were on display for a week at Southwick Methodist Church for its tree festival.

Each of the trees, decorated by a different group, was adorned with decorations inspired by a Christmas carol or song.

The songs ranged from the Little Lights toddlers singing group illustrating The Little Drummer Boy to the Wednesday Fellowship 
taking the theme of We Three Kings.

The Rev Ian Suttie said: “The Christmas tree festival at Southwick Methodist Church was a great success. When the trees were all lit up in the church, the effect was stunning.

“On the Saturday of the festival we also organised two sessions for families to 
come and have breakfast or brunch with Father Christmas.

“The families came to share in Christmas craft activities, have breakfast or brunch, visit Father Christmas, and see the Christmas trees.

“Over a hundred children and their families took part in the morning.

“Everyone enjoyed looking at the special decorations and the children also enjoyed taking part in a Christmas tree quiz.

“It was great to welcome so many people into the church during the festival and to share the message of Christmas with them and we would like to thank everyone for their generous donations to the Macmillan Cancer Care appeal.”
