Come home to share the joy

START a new tradition with your family this Christmas at the Calvary Carols Spectacular, Coming home for Christmas.

The spectacular kicks off at 4.30pm on Friday at the Calvary Church Emerald on Gladstone St with a Christmas Festival until 5.30pm.

The festival boasts a petting zoo, jumping castles and food for dinner before the show.

The show starts from 6pm and musical director Alysha Hunkin said it was an event for the whole family to enjoy.

"We all have different traditions when it comes to Christmas,” she said.

"Whether it's waking up early to open presents, eating mum's Christmas lunch or wearing your brightest and craziest Christmas shirt for family photos, Coming Home For Christmas is all about celebrating the one tradition we can all share.

"It's about coming home to share the special day with loved ones.”

Miss Hunkin said one of her favourite traditions of the festive season was singing carols with loved ones and this year the team at Calvary have worked hard to put on a Christmas show that everyone can have fun at.

"Come along and celebrate the Christmas season with us,” she said.

"It's the perfect opportunity to enjoy singing along to the favourites with friends and family.”

The free event features all the favourite Christmas carols, a visit from Santa and plenty of jolly fun.

"We'll be singing all your favourite carols as well as some like you've never heard them before,” Miss Hunkin said.

"Plus Santa and his elves will be visiting during the night and will be handing out treats to the children.

"This really is an event for everyone.

"Bring the family and your friends, this will be a great night out for all.”
