Christmas Alive

The Christmas Story

Hear and see the ancient and ageless story of Christmas.  Sing carols with your neighbours.  Come early, enjoy hot chocolate and meet the donkeys and sheep.  Organized for Gabriola by its churches. 30 – 45 minutes in length.

A free family-friendly event.

Emily Jacobson has volunteered to take on Christmas Alive as of 2018.  She brings youth, energy and creative ideas to the endeavour!  One of the things she is most determined about is that Christmas Alive continues to be a joint venture of all the churches on Gabriola and the wider community. 

"It’s wonderful working with members of five churches on the island.  That’s a highlight for me.  I’m also blown away by all the people in the wider community who are helping with sound, lighting, alpacas and donkeys." Brockley adds that although people have rehearsed, “Any story involving a baby won’t go strictly according to plan.”
