Qualicum Beach church hosts free Christmas dinner

The Christian Fellowship Centre will host the banquet on Dec. 14 from 5 to 8 p.m.

This December, like the past 20, the congregation of Christian Fellowship Centre in Qualicum Beach will be hosting a free Community Christmas Banquet in their facility at 825 Village Way.

They invite those alone for the holidays, folks in need, families in crisis, or ones simply desiring a positive festive atmosphere.

Each year, more than 600 people participate in the “continuous buffet” which allows guests to come at any point between 5 and 8 p.m. As well as a great meal, there is caroling, live entertainment and lots of visiting among neighbors and new friends.

After finishing their turkey dinner and dessert, guests are welcome to find a balcony seat and participate in the singing and enjoy the entertainment. This year the banquet is on Friday, Dec. 14 from 5-8 p.m. For further information, call 250-752-5513 or visit
