Nine Bible lessons were read in nine different languages by selected members of GTP Management, Staff and Trade Partners. Each lesson was followed by great Carols performed by 4 internal choirs namely, The Administration Choir, The Support Services Choir, The Production Choir and The Retail Choir. They were supported by one external choir, The Commissioners. It was a highly competitive musical show.

The word of Exhortation was delivered by Rev Claudette Brown on the theme “What Do You Treasure up in Your Heart?”. She recounted the Birth of Jesus and Mary’s steadfast faith in God during the Crucifixion of her Son Jesus. She admonished the staff and management to treasure God’s word just as Mary did.

Rev David Nikoi led the entire congregation in a time of Thanksgiving and Prayers.
