The 2012 Advent Service was observed by some of the Anglican Parish of Central Goulburn's Mother's Union at St Paul's church in Avenel on December 5.
The local Anglican Mothers’ Union branch with members from Nagambie, Avenel and Seymour has held a lesson and carols service at St Paul’s in Avenel for many years, and in 2012 it was conducted on December 5.
The group’s annual meeting was held at 10
Mary Greenshields was re-elected as president, Diane Grant as vice-president, Maree Boyle as secretary, Dawn Leece is treasurer and Boyce Catchlove is the auditor.
There were a few members who were unable attend but those who did enjoyed the annual celebration. Members read the Bible lessons, sang the evergreen carols and read a reflection based around the birth of Jesus born in a stable.
Mary Greenshields played Avenel church’s organ for the service, and the singing reflected the glory of Christ’s birth.
Following the service the members enjoyed lunch at Avenel’s Imperial Hotel.
