The Queenstown Community Choir opened the Combined Churches of the Wakatipu Christmas Carols Celebration with Hark! The Herald Angels Sing on Sunday evening.

Scores of residents and holidaymakers sang along to O Come All Ye Faithful, Once in Royal David's City, Feliz Navidad and other festive favourites on the sun-drenched grounds of St Peter's Church.

Choristers from C3 Church, the Salvation Army and City Impact delighted the crowd, passages from Luke were read and retiring Wakatipu Parish vicar the Rt Rev Dr David Coles spoke.
