Russell Island Safety Church Christmas Service was held at the Russell Island RSL on Tuesday 13 December. There was a full attendance. The service was led by Andrew resplendent in red, and Pastor Fred’s sermon, Christmas or Chaos, had us all thinking about the meaning of Christmas.
Music and the words of the carols was projected on a dark screen and all joined in the communal singing. It was a beautiful service full of Christmas Spirit, and followed by a barbecue with sausages, meat patties, potato salad, a mixed salad, beetroot and pineapple slices. A Christmas Gift package was presented to service members and I was thrilled with my package of a plum pudding, custard, apple drink, cookies, shortbread as well as pickled capsicums and gherkins and fruit juices…generously donated by the RSL, the IGA, private members and organized by the Safety Church. The gift bags were donated by MP Kim Richards.
