What do 3 preoccupied Wisemen and 2 disgruntled Christmas shoppers have in common? They all missed Christmas! The New Glasgow Christmas Choir will present the musical play “Missing Christmas” on Saturday, Dec. 2nd and Sunday, Dec. 3rd at 7:30 p.m. at the New Glasgow Christian Church.

Wonderful music and this humourous and surprising retelling of the Christmas story are a great way to begin Christmas celebrations this year. The church is located opposite the New Glasgow Lobster Suppers on Route 258 in New Glasgow.

Admission is free but the choir hopes to raise enough money through donations to send a stable full of animals to a World Vision village. Through World Vision, it is possible to send farm animals to the world’s neediest children and their families. The World Vision Christmas Gift Catalogue gives groups and individuals the opportunity to bring health and lasting income to a hungry family. The gift of animals is a gift that keeps giving year after year! The animals aren’t just handed over – families attend training classes about animal rearing and breeding. Through the Pass On program, when a family receives goats, for example, they agree to pass on to another family the same number of goats once the animals have reproduced. Around the world, the gift of animals is creating a domino effect of generosity to help families living in poverty. A stable full of animals can transform an entire community. Each Christmas for the past few years, the choir has raised enough money to send several stables to a needy village.
