Are you interested in running a local carols outreach without the cost and complexity of professional musicians and staging? Then gather together your Church, neighbours, nursing home, sports group, school, playgroup or family around our free and professionally produced carols. 
 
Any church or community can stream Carols in Your Backyard where ever you can set up a screen & speakers: in a park, church hall, car park, lounge room, dining hall, backyard or street. You may decide to host a Christmas gathering of between 50 and 200 people and play the carols on a large screen or share the link so smaller gatherings can play the carols on TVs and in backyards.
 
Register your interest to access ideas for hosting and children’s activities and to gain access to the live-stream. Contact Belinda.Lakelin@gymeabaptist.org.au

FAQ

Q. How does this work?
A. Imagine you are gathering people to watch a footy grand final. People mingle, eat and connect. When the carols start people can either sit, watch and sing along or continue to chat with the carols in the background. You will need a screen and speakers for your gathering.

Q. How do I access the Carols?
A. You need to register to get access to the pre-recorded carols. Email belinda.lakelin@gymeabapist.org.au to register or express an interest.

Q. Would this suit a rural community?
A. Yes! The Carols are unbranded. Some of the sponsors may be located in Sydney, but the event is designed to support any community no matter where in Australia they are.

Q. Will there be a Christmas message?
