The evening of Contemporary Christmas Carols hosted by Wisbech Churches Together with The King's Church, Wisbech in aid of the Refugee Fundraising Appeal happened on Saturday. The Queen Mary Centre in Wisbech came alive with rousing music - some familiar Christmas Carols alongside more contemporary Christmas worship songs which were enjoyed by all. Video clips of the Christmas story set within a modern context punctuated the music. Just before the interval, there was a moment to pause and pray for those caught up in the refugee crisis in Europe with prayer stations to help bring a focus to our prayers.
During the interval there were tea, coffee, mince pies, a variety of items needed in the Calais 'Jungle' Camp in France posted on an Amazon Wish List and some needlework crafts on sale to help raise funds for the appeal. A total of £247.36 was raised at the event that will be shared between the Hope For Calais Amazon wish list and the Christian Aid emergency appeal.
Thank you to everyone who attended.
