On a mission to make and grow disciples

First Minister joins Christmas Project

Posted by Alan Mcknight on December 2, 2015

Shop windows in the Kinning Park area of the city are going to be decorated with a Christmas theme by members of the local community thanks to a project organised by Harper Church and Harper Community Initiative (HCI).
Each window will feature a different Christmas carol and local civic dignitaries - including First Minister Nicola Sturgeon – will unveil them day by day in the run up to Christmas.
Community groups will partner with local businesses to decorate the windows before members of the community gather for the unveiling and join in with some community carol singing. The project is designed to bring the different parts of the Kinning Park community together this Christmas.
It all begins on Wednesday 16 December when STV’s John McKay will reveal how the young people of Bellahouston Academy have transformed ‘Quick Bite’s’ window into the ‘Little Town of Bethlehem’.
The unveilings will then take place every day until Christmas Eve when there will be a “Carol Crawl” around the various windows starting at Kinning Perk Café on Harvie Street at 6pm and ending with a Carol Service at Harper Church at 7pm.
Alan McKnight, minister at Harper Church said:
“There has been a great response to the project from the community and we are really looking forward to celebrating the good news of Jesus Christ with the wonderful community of Kinning Park. I think a ‘carol crawl’ is probably a first for the Kinning Park area and I’m excited that so many partners have come together this Christmas.”
