Mooroopna Anglican Church festive fun

By James Bennett

Mooroopna's Anglican Church opened its doors on Saturday to share the celebration of Christmas.

There were more than 100 nativity scenes on display, and people could become their own version of Mary and Joseph with the nativity scene photo booth.

Youngsters created festive decorations and helped add tinsel to the tree, while older attendees just sat back and enjoyed a cuppa.

Mission secretary Ingrid Mauger said the event helped remind people about the Christmas message of Jesus’ birth.

All money raised on the day will go towards Christmas boxes that are sent by the charity Samaritan's Purse to those in need overseas.
