Celebrating the meaning of Christmas at Christ Church Beaurepaire: activities for the whole family
Advent is upon us, and in just a few short weeks the Christ Church Beaurepaire will be celebrating "the coming of the Light of Christ into our world, into our lives, and into our hearts!"
Though we continue to struggle with the pandemic and the restrictions resulting from it, those at Christ Church Beaurepaire are trying their best to continue their beloved Advent and Christmas traditions. The first of these is the Wassail Christmas Carol Sing-Along, which will be this Friday, Dec. 3rd, at 7:00 p.m. Registration is not required to attend the singing, but pre-registration is required to attend the reception afterward.
All money collected at the Wassail goes to support the Christmas Basket Program.

Christ Church Beaurepaire Christmas Basket Program 2021
This year the CCB will be supporting 10 families in need (30 people) with grocery store gift cards and a small gift for each family member. For the next few weeks, they will be accepting donations in the form of cash, E-Transfers, or cheques (made out to CCB) to pay for the grocery store gift cards.
However you choose to make your donation, please clearly mark “Attn: Christmas Baskets.
