Cranbrook Churches: 0050.0386




            Special Christmas services were held in all the city Churches on Sunday last.

            Christ Church was attractively decorated with evergreens and chrysanthemums.  At the evening service a number of carols were sung by the choir, also a solo by Mrs. A.B. Macdonald.

            Archdeacon Beer officiated at the Christmas morning service, the celebration of Holy Communion being fully choral.



            Mr. W. Wortman was the soloist at Knox Church on Sunday morning.  At the evening service there was special music by Miss Wanda and Master Vincent Fink, with solos by Mrs. J. Thomson and Mr. Wortman.  There was a patriotic touch to the decorations, the Canadian flag being used with the usual evergreens.



            Floral decorations were used in the Methodist Church, special attention having been given to the Honor Roll.

            The anthems “O be Joyful,” by A. Bierly, and “Christians Awake,” Maunder, were rendered by the choir.  At the morning service Miss Eunice Parrett sang the “Christmas Song,” Harrington, very sweetly, while in the evening Morrow’s “Star of Bethlehem” was given by Mrs. Wallace, also a quartette “Nazareth” by Mrs. Wallace, Miss Hamilton, Messrs. Toombs and Morton.



            “Praise ye the Lord” and “I bring you Glad Tidings,” were the anthems rendered by the choir at the Baptist Church, in addition to which Mr. J. Palmer sang the “Advent Hymn” at the evening service.

            In the sermons at each Church special reference was made to the season of Christmas and the congregations were unusually large.
