LAUNCHING CHRISTMAS: Christmas in Rocket Park is on again this weekend and the whole community is invited, Mt Albert Baptist Church lead pastor Jonathan Dove says.

Dust off your vocal cords, get into the festive mood, and come along to Christmas in Rocket Park.

The annual carols by candlelight event organised by the Mt Albert Baptist Church is on again on Sunday.

"It's our gift to the Mt Albert Community," the church's lead pastor Jonathan Dove says.

"We want to launch the Christmas season with a high community spirit."

The night is birthday themed and Mr Dove says there are lots of party games planned including a mass round of pass the parcel.

The celebrations begin earlier in the day this year with children's activities running from 3.30pm. Carol singing and performances hosted by Petra Bagust will start at 6pm.

Proceeds from collections taken during the evening will go to Plunket.

In the past the event has attracted more than 3000 people.

Rocket Park is on New North Rd in Mt Albert.
