The first time we mixed secular performances at our event.

Volunteers from the East Ilford Betterment partnership helped steward the event.

Despite the cold attendance was extremely good.

A multicultural attendance allowed us to share the gospel widely.

Families spoke of the great joy they felt at our event.

Children brought their friends.

People clambered to the front to see what was happening.

Diana Ofori a gospel singer from Holy Nations Church, Pimlico, belted out carols and modern worship songs.

British National Acro Dancer Latasha Sinclair a practising Catholic performed a reenactment in dance, of the Birth of Jesus.
