Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity are inviting guests to celebrate a traditional Christmas with us on Sunday 4 December at 7:30pm. Our Dickensian Carol Service will be taking place in the beautiful surroundings of Sunderland Minster set in the heart of the city of Sunderland.
“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year”. Charles Dickens
Our very special guest reader will be the Children’s Laureate and prize winning children’s author Anne Fine, OBE. We will also be visited by the Mayoress of Sunderland, and Santa himself will be there in his sleigh!
During the hour long service we will have Christmas carols and readings to bring the festivities alive and an opportunity to light a candle in memory of a loved one.
Personal dedications for the Book of Remembrance can be made for a donation of £1.00.
After the event, all guests are invited to soak up the atmosphere of Christmas with a glass of wine and a mince pie and a chance to buy some Christmas gifts.
