Men volunteering their strength
to build the tree structure.
On a Wednesday, two weeks prior to the cantatas, wood frames are brought into the church sanctuary by sequence, via unloading a large truck container.
The following Saturday morning, men come to volunteer their muscles and build the tree structure. After the wood structure is secure, artificial greenery attached to chicken wire are screwed to the front to finish the tree.
Doors open up through the centre
allowing the singers to climb the tree.
Once the foundation of the tree is secure, that same Saturday afternoon, the sound and lighting experts come to finish the job.
The next Sunday afternoon into the evening hours, many women and men come to volunteer their time to add 10,000 light bulbs to the tree.
