Figtree Carols by the Creek (cancelled)

Unfortunately due to the wet and windy forecast for later this week and into the weekend, we have had to cancel this year’s Carols by the Creek event. The outdoor area we have been preparing for the event is already very wet and the forecast suggests this will only worsen. 

Consideration was given to moving the event inside to our church auditorium, however COVID restrictions would significantly limit attendance numbers, all of whom would be required to wear masks.   

We are praying that we will be able to run this event as normal next year and we hope you will be able to join us!

27 years ago a small group from Figtree Anglican Church gathered to sing Christmas carols together and celebrate the festive season with a picnic. Over the years this became a large annual celebration for our whole community!

Due to restrictions on large gatherings, at this year's Carols event we will take inspiration from those first few gatherings, and celebrate with a smaller scale Carols by the Creek event on our own property. 

It will be held on Saturday, 11 December, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm, on the floodplain at the rear of our church that adjoins the Figtree High School oval.

There will be entertainment, carols singing, and activities for the kids. You can BYO picnic or there will be a sausage sizzle available.

This is a great opportunity for us to gather as a church community at the end of what has been a challenging year, and we also encourage you to invite your friends, neighbours, work colleagues, etc.
