The Mission and Outreach Group at Girdle Toll Church is inviting Irvine residents to join them for the return of their joint carol service.

On Sunday December 4 at 6.30pm in Girdle Toll Church the service will ring in the holiday season as choir members will perform Christmas carols, with the service also including readings, prayers, and a meditation.

The Annick Primary School Choir, who have sung at the service before, will join as special guest performers.

A representative said: “We warmly welcome an invitation to all the church congregations in Irvine to join us celebrate Advent as we look forward to Christmas Day.

“We are delighted to welcome back Annick Primary School Choir who will entertain between the Carols etc. It will be a wonderful evening of celebration together.

“A very warm welcome awaits those who attend.”

Refreshments and mince pies will be served in the hall after the service, with a retiring collection in aid of the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal.
