60 Guelph Street, Georgetown
On the church grounds is a life size nativity scene. St. George’s has commissioned the Ontario sculptor, Robbin Wenzosk, to create hand carved life sized wooden figures of the Nativity. The wood for these sculptures has been repurposed from damaged or old growth native provincial trees, otherwise left for other purposes or to decay. It provides nature’s original creations a second life. Read more about the artist and the process here.
The nativity scene will be lit December 1 through January 6.
All are welcome to come and see this display.
Located in the beautiful Dominion Gardens Park, this is the site of the first Tree of Hope in 2008. The park comes alive with thousands of lights decorating both trees and lighting displays.
Other people and organizations are also inspired to "light up" during the month of December and would like to share their displays with the community. If you have an inspirational display that would fit in with the Light Up the Hills message of hope, community and celebration, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 905-877-6710.
The more lights the merrier!
