Deloraine Combined Christian Churches

Sing a song of Christmas

NewsJoanne EisemannComment


The sausages were sizzling, the night was balmy and the familiar sound of carols drifted through the air as the Combined Christian Churches of Deloraine held their annual Carols by the River Service. It was almost standing room only as the space around the rotunda was packed with locals and international spectators who were treated to a traditional feast of yuletide music and song. Pictured above, enjoying the evening, were Imogen Milne, Addy Myers & Eva Milne, all of Deloraine.

DELORAINE ‘FESTIVAL by the River’ was well attended by families from as far afield as Launceston and across the Meander Valley.

As well as activities for children including stilt-walking, jumping castle, King of the Castle and lots of other organised games, there were food stalls and live music.

The Festival, organised by the Deloraine Combined Christian Churches, was based on family fun and a celebration of the true meaning of Easter.

A somewhat sombre note was raised when John Phelps, Chairman of the Combined Churches Association, confirmed to the Meander Valley Gazette that the local Uniting Church will close its doors, due to a declining congregation.

The closing service will take place on Sunday, 7th May.
