Every year, Woden Valley Alliance Church (or WVAC, which sounds like a new hoover in an infomercial) holds a free all-welcome BBQ and fun day, with face painting, a jumping castle (which adults aren’t allowed on – how unfair is that?), and of course Christmas carols and Santa and lollies (who arrived in a jeep this year, barely making it onto the scene before a massive storm erupted overhead – usually he rides a Harley Davidson). CJ and I never miss it.
It’s so good when a church manages to do something that is well organised and genuinely enjoyable for absolutely anyone who shows up.
CJ offered to play his bass with the carols this year, so I took my chance and stole a paparazzi shot of him.
