With Easter fast approaching, Gisborne residents will be able to gather for a free family event run by The Voice of Joy and Gladness.

Following the success of the 2023 Carols by Candlelight, the group has expanded to Easter celebrations and will hold the event on Friday, March 22, from 5.30pm to 8pm at John Aitken Reserve, Gisborne.

Event manager Lousie Van der Kraan said residents can look forward to an enjoyable evening with a string orchestra, an opera singer, plus supporting singers, free children’s activities, along with a variety of food van options.

“For the first time The Voice of Joy and Gladness is presenting to the Macedon Ranges community a hope-filled program depicting the events of Easter,” she said.

“This Easter we would like the audience to experience a journey to spark the imagination through a thoughtful two-hour production contemplating the closing week of Jesus’ ministry on earth.

“Together we will walk down the dusty road of Jerusalem through a powerful music presentation and will dwell on the themes of the Triumphant Entry, the Last Supper, Gethsemane, and Calvary.

“We each can gain a fresh outlook of appreciation of God’s love for humanity as we gaze on the gift of love- Jesus on Calvary.”

The event is non-denominational and everyone is welcome.
