Christmas in the City – A free community event!

Have you booked your free tickets to the Christmas in the City event happening this Sunday? The Lifestyle Church, Salvation Army and other local Gladstone Churches have joined forces to put on a free family event on Goondoon Street. With free carol services, face painting, jumping castles, popcorn, fairy floss, petting zoo, food and drinks available, the day is sure to put a smile on the face of every member of the family. And yes you heard me right – everything is free, a blessing from these Churches!

There are 3 carol services at 3pm, 4.30pm and 6pm, with the 6pm service broadcasting live to the LCD screen at Light box for those who missed out on seats. Jessica Hill from the Gladstone Lifestyle Church said this event was the first of its kind in Gladstone and was hatched from a monthly meeting held by all the local churches.

“The Lifestyle Church had planned to hold the Christmas in the City event and the Salvation Army do Hampers of Hope, at the monthly meeting the discussion started about combining the two initiatives, and from there other churches became involved too” Jessica said

“Only 234 tickets to the carol services are still available out of 2025 on offer, which is great feedback from the community”

Head to the Gladstone Events & Convention Centre (GECC) website to book your free tickets to attend one of the three carol services soon before there are none left. You wouldn’t want to miss this magical community occasion.
