Christmas in Nanaimo: Singing Christmas Tree lights up for 19th year

After 18 years, ET  Family Church’s Singing Christmas Tree is a holiday tradition for many mid-Island families.

The chuch’s 19th production takes place Dec 9-11 and Dec. 16-18 with 7 p.m. nightly shows and 4 p.m. matinees on the Saturdays and Sundays.

This year’s drama production – with its seven metre tree holding more than 50 choir members – is In the Nick of Time.

It tells the story of Nicholas, a man who lives in dark and troubling times.

He wants to help others, but is torn by the fact that doing so has led to prison time in the past.

When he encounters people who really need his help, will he turn a blind eye, or will he do what he knows is right?

Free tickets are available at ET Family Church, 1300 Princess Royal Ave., The Buzz Coffee House, 1-1415 Uplands Dr. and Tia Mei’s Café, 741 Third St.

Tickets guarantee a seat to popular event. Doors open 15 minutes prior to the performance for non-ticket holders if space permits.
