Six churches in Bendigo played host to Girton Grammar School’s annual service of carols on Tuesday evening. Forest Street Uniting Church, St Andrew’s Uniting Church, Bendigo Baptist Church, St Paul’s Cathedral, Holy Trinity Anglican Church and St Kilian’s Catholic Church opened their doors to 2000 students, staff and parents from the school.
Students from prep to year 11 donated more than 1000 gifts to St Vincent de Paul, St Luke's, Bendigo Baptist Community Care and Bendigo Uniting Outreach Appeal. The annual donation of gifts from students is a long standing tradition as part of the annual service.
All pictures appearing in this gallery are available for purchase at the Bendigo Advertiser offices, 67-71 Williamson Street, Bendigo, between 9am and 5pm weekdays.
