Christmas Tree Festival 2016

This year's Christmas Tree Festival on 10 and 11 December 2016 was a great success, with 19 Christmas Trees on display throughout the main hall. With members from all over the local community bringing their own specially decorated trees to display, the event captured the spiritual and fun aspects of Christmas in the true spirit of The Salvation Army.

On Saturday 10 December, we held a Christmas tree exhibition. We had a steady stream of people throughout the day, with one Salvationist travelling all the way from Suffolk to attend!  Many people were impressed with the unique trees and praised the creativity of those who took part.  On the day people were encouraged to participate in writing a  prayer on a tag to display on the Prayer Tree. They could also choose a tag from the Gift Tree and purchase a small gift for people less fortunate than ourselves.

Sunday's performance event was enjoyed by a packed audience, with everyone joining in to sing Christmas Carols. Children from Sunday School performed the Nativity, Father Christmas visited with free pantomime tickets for families, and we had the opportunity to enjoy three exceptional performances from Konverse dance groups. 

Barking Corps would like to thank Enid Weaver, who came up with the event, everyone who displayed a Christmas tree and all who attended. We would also like to thank Ripple Primary School and Barking Library for their continued assistance in ensuring the success of our events,
