Christmas Festival 2019
The Christmas Festival 2019 begins with our annual Twilight market to start the Festive season off on Saturday, 7th December.
From Monday, 9th to Friday, 13th there are twice-daily choir services in the church, at 10.30 and 1.30 pm. Please see above pdf file for the program for each day to find out which choirs or musicians are on.
The Festival Shop will be open on those days from 10 am to 4 pm selling Christmas gifts and decorations, handmade locally and lovingly throughout the year by two dedicated groups of people who meet at St Stephens every Thursday morning and afternoon during the year.
The shop is also open on Saturday, 13th December from 10 to 4 pm and on the following Saturday during the Tamahere Country Market from 8 to 1 pm.
Light refreshments like tea, coffee, juice, shortbread and Christmas cake are available at the shop.
You are welcome to bring a picnic and enjoy it on our beautiful grounds surrounding the hall and church.
Christmas Festivals have been held at St Stephens since 1986 with the aim of presenting the Bethlehem Story and raising funds for various charities.
