Crucible Church invites you, your family and friends to a Christmas evening celebration at our new campus in the city centre of Richmond!
During the night, you and your guests will enjoy a dinner buffet catered by "Best of the City Gold Winner," Emelles Catering and be entertained with live musical entertainment preformed by Eli Bennet, a 35 time-award winning saxophone player and Rosemary Siemens, a world class violinist who became the first violinist to perform at the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican in Rome.
