GLOW – Carols by Glowstick 2012


Christmas Carol Event at Vector Arena, hosted by Petra Bagust

For the fourth year in a row, St Paul’s Church and Vector Arena are sharing the love and hosting a Christmas Carol Service for all of Auckland city: GLOW - Carols by Glowstick. On Sunday 16 December 2012 between 6.00pm – 7.30pm, the Arena will be transformed into a Christmas wonderland under soft glowy lights, of ten thousand glowsticks!

Hosted by Petra Bagust, GLOW is a celebration of Christmas that will combine Christmas carols, the Christmas story and performances by Nathan King and special guests.

This year we are supporting the Auckland City Mission and we are asking each family attending GLOW to bring an item of non-perishable food to donate and share love with the community.

All ticket sale proceeds from GLOW will be donated to the ‘KidsCan’ charity (www.kidscan.org.nz) Last year over $25,000 was raised for A Girl called Hope Charity.

GLOW 2009, 2010 & 2011 were sell outs so it is advisable to purchase tickets early to avoid disappointment.
