Christmas at Carey 2017
Celebrating Christmas Together
There are so many reasons to celebrate at this time of the year.
It is also true that for some Christmas can be a particularly hard time of the year.
We would love for you and your family to be part of the Carey Community Celebrations in whatever place you find yourself in this year. We believe that as a community we are better together.

More information about the services
We’ve got plenty of parking spaces, but we’ve also got a lot of people who will be attending our Christmas Services, so those spots fill up fast. We encourage you to arrive early to find your spot in time for the service commencement.
We will celebrate together as families in an all combined service together. We welcome all ages, the more the merrier!
WHAT TO WEAR
At Carey, everyone is welcome to come just as they are. Some people like to dress up and others dress very casually. We encourage you to come the way that you feel most comfortable.
AFTER THE SERVICE
For those who would like to linger, stay a while and celebrate, are more than welcome to. We’ll have a delicious Christmas themed supper/morning tea.
You are welcome to fill out a connect card and bring it to the welcome lounge in the foyer and say hi. This helps us to stay in communication with you and let you know about all of the exciting things happening at Carey throughout the year. If you don’t wish to be contacted, you can simply indicate that on the card.
Feel free to stop by the main foyer and hang out for a while, meet our Pastoral team or stop by the information table to learn more about Carey Church.
