Organised by the Kiama Ministers’ Fraternal (representing the churches in Kiama and Gerringong), the community gathering regularly attracts a crowd of 3000 locals.
The event is sponsored by the Kiama Council, the combined churches and many service clubs and businesses. This year, the Kiama Farmers’ Market has stepped in as a major sponsor and will be encouraging people to stay for the Carols after the regular Wednesday market.
Rev Steve Stanis, co-chair of the Carols Committee, says “Everyone was really
disappointed last year when the weather drove us indoors at the last minute, so we’re looking forward to a fine and clear evening this year.”
Mission Australia’s Triple Care Farm has been selected as the worthy recipient of
this year’s charity offering, and local shops (many of whom assist with sponsorship of the event) will be ‘open for business’ just across the road from the Carols.
“This is very deliberately an event for the whole Kiama community,’ says Steve Stanis, “Let’s all turn out to celebrate Christmas together.”
