Christmas dinner offered at Agassiz Anglican church

'Singing and laughter are the two best things at Christmas'

The Anglican Church is once again throwing open its doors on Christmas Day, to invite the community in for turkey dinner.

This is the second year they’ve planned the event.

Marceline Billis said they are encouraging anyone who doesn’t want to spend Christmas alone to come out and enjoy the company.

“This is for people who are alone, maybe they’re older and the kids are all gone and they don’t want to cook,” she said.

There will carol singing and festivities, she added.

“Singing and laughter are the two best things at Christmas,” she said. Last year, 55 people joined them for dinner, all from different backgrounds and for different reasons.

There will be tickets sold this year, at $10 a piece. The money collected will be going to an Anglican church in the Arctic that is sinking in the ground as the permafrost melts.

Ticket sales cutoff is on Dec. 5, so the volunteers organizing the dinner can begin to prepare. For more information, phone Marceline at 604-796-0560.
