A HALESOWEN church is set to stage a Christmas themed musical written by its own creative team.

The Search - a Christmas Musical - will be at Zion Christian Centre on Sunday December 16.

It tells the story of a family which is finding Christmas stressful.

The daughter goes on a search for the perfect Christmas song as a gift for her dad. There follows a journey through classic Christmas songs with a twist at the end.

The church’s senior leader Leon Evans said: “We are so excited about this event, not only have 900 people already bought tickets but all the proceeds will go to support orphans and vulnerable children in Amulo, Zambia.”

The musical will be performed at 11am, 4pm and 7.30pm.

For tickets, at £2, call the church office on 0121 501 3542.
