A Polar Express railway carriage will be constructed in church where children can enter with their parents and guided by their conductor they will marvel at snow capped mountains, the Northern Lights and Santa's toy shop.

They will be able to enjoy chocolate and fudge delights as the story unfolds and then they will gather around the tree to receive their first Christmas gift.

Remember the bell only rings for true believers. Will the bell still ring for you?
