Last week the Chancel Choir and Orchestra treated us to a rare worship experience. Thank you Forrest, Janice and choir! This Sunday our children's ministry leads us in worship. "The James Legge Christmas Musical" is written and directed by Danielle Bradsher. We welcome Dr. Lauren Pfister from HKBU, the leading authority on James Legge as a guest and we will interview him. We thank the 120 children, their parents, and the production team for making this celebration possible.

The James Legge Christmas Musical Sun, 14 Dec, Two Shows at 9:30AM & 11AM Services  The time has come to applaud all our children’s hard work and enjoy the performance of the James Legge Christmas Musical. We have two performances: 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM. We kindly ask that families only attend one performance since our Sanctuary has limited space. Children in the performance must arrive by 9:00AM and go directly to the Lower Annex. Chris Yorks will be there to help them warm up their voices. After the performances, don’t forget to visit the Christmas Gift Table where you can buy some lovely James Legge related items. All the proceeds from the sale go to International China Concern (ICC), a Christian organization which takes care of disabled and abandoned children in China. You can also buy a professionally made VIDEO of your children’s performances in the Christmas musical; it only costs HK$100 and all proceeds go to the ICC charity.
