First Ballymena present First Light Christmas Celebration on Saturday 2nd December 2017 at 7:30pm. The annual First Light event will take place in First Ballymena Presbyterian Church, Meeting House Lane, Ballymena.
This year the concert is in aid of leading local cancer charity, Cancer Focus Northern Ireland.
First Light Christmas Celebration features a festival choir of 75 voices and supported by an instrumental ensemble of accomplished young musicians. This atmospheric evening is a wonderful way to capture the true meaning of Christmas.
Step away from the mad whirl of festive preparation to rest and reflect in the magical candlelit surroundings of First Ballymena’s historic sanctuary. Songs, readings and film clips will take you on a journey back 2,000 years to the first Christmas.
Enjoy an uplifting repertoire of old favourites, like O Holy Night, and new inspirations from around the world. Of course it’s also an opportunity for you too to sing some of your favourite carols.
End your evening with delicious festive refreshments served in the church hall and a chance to chat with friends old and new.
