On Friday evening Hongkongers from across all 3 of the Welcome Courses, plus those newly signed up for Spring, came to enjoy a great Christmas party!

We had around 32 families arrive, bringing a delicious selection of favourite foods which were the first things we appreciated. Our next treat was two Carols led by a professional pianist and singer in both English and Cantonese, followed by the 12 Days of Christmas led by our own Simon. Pastor Cheung from the Chinese Church did a bi-lingual Christmas message, making sure we all got the story in the right sequence!

Then it was time for games – Pass the Parcel and Musical Chairs, led by Carol and Tom! Everyone certainly threw themselves into these games which produced a great deal of laughter.

All too soon it was time to clear up and say our goodbyes, but not before a donation was given to St John’s. Special thanks must go to Charmain for her organizational abilities, despite feeling unwell.
