The proactive Glenwood Community Forum believes this bustling suburb is a “good place to live, work, educate and raise a family”. To this end, they will host a special carol service on December 3, featuring members from the schools and churches within the Glenwood Community

The interdenominational carol service will include nativity readings, poems, and choir solos. There is also plenty of audience participation to sing familiar and well-loved Christmas carols. It is anticipated that the programme will feature children from the Glenwood High, Glenwood Prep, St Henrys, the Glenwood Community Pre-School and Open Air School.

The pre-schoolers are performing the Nativity Play and there will be Bible readings and Christmas Carols performed by the other schools. The churches involved are Sycamore Full Gospel; Frere Rd Presbyterian; Glenwood Community Church; Hope Church and Brighton Rd Baptist Church.

Christmas Carol Service in the Park will take place at Glenwood High School on December 3 from 18h00 to 19h30 as the sun sets. Entrance is free and all are welcome. A special collection will be taken during the service for Jeannette Smit Centre which cares for the elderly in the Glenwood area. For more information visit
