ROCK ?N? ROLL CHURCH: Wintersun organiser and musician Ron Kitchin gets geared up for the third annual Wintersun Church Service

Let?s rock ?n? roll



GUITAR solos and rockin' tunes are not something you usually associate with church. Unless it's Wintersun, then they go together like rock and roll.

For the third year running St Peters Anglican Church in Coolangatta will be staging its Wintersun church service on Sunday morning with all the rockin' music that have got people dancing in the aisle since the idea was conceived in 2004.

Service convenor Ron Pyle said a line-up of rock 'n' roll celebrities including Ron Kitchin, Alan Dale, Johnny Rebb, Lonnie Lee, Ian MacLeod and none other than Elvis himself will grace the stage with numbers to get toes tapping and people dancing.

"We've got the usual rock service here and we're thrilled about it and it's now in its third year so it's become an important part of Wintersun," Mr Pyle said.

"Music has always been an important part of church so this is all about that and it's getting the community involved and they love it and the good news is there will be even more music this year."

Last year's Wintersun service was packed to capacity with 320 or so revellers and Mr Pyle is expecting nothing less this year and is enticing keen church-goers to rock up early for the best seats in the house.

"So the message is, come early and let the good times roll," he said.

The Wintersun church service will be held at St Peter's Anglican Church on Lanham Street, Coolangatta from 9am.
