Shane Lynch is to talk about his former life with Boyzone in a question-and-answer session at a Perth church.
The Irish singer, 47, announced earlier this year that he had quit the pop group – and showbusiness altogether – having become a born-again Christian.
He will switch on the Christmas lights at Perth’s Trinity Church of the Nazarene, York Place, on December 17 at 5.30pm.
Shane will then take part in a question and answer session about his Christian faith and his time in Boyzone, which has sold millions of records worldwide.
Shane Lynch to talk about Boyzone during Perth church event
In a recent interview, the father-of-two made some unsavoury claims about the music industry.
He told the Premier Christianity magazine: “I have been in rooms at the top of the top in which albums are preyed over demonically – music is preyed over demonically.
“That goes out to the world, to the radio stations and to the public.”
But he added: “The journey is so beautiful when you become born again.”
A community choir and puppet show will also feature at the church on December 17. A nativity play will take place that morning at 10.30am.
Between December 18 and 22 there will be a light show outside the church from 4pm to 8pm and a cafe, from 6pm to 7.30pm, serving hot drinks, mulled wine and mince pies.
Entry to the Shane Lynch event is £5 with children getting in free, although they do require a ticket. All monies raised will go towards those suffering in the Gaza conflict.
