Will you help fill the church garden with angel and star decorations for Advent?

You can make something to your own design, or use our knitting patterns (available here: Star knitting pattern  Angel knitting pattern or in church). Marked boxes for completed items will be left under the table just inside the glass door into church, which is open daily except for Mondays and Fridays. We’ll need lots!

You can also Paint a Pebble with your own design on November 27th 10-11.30 am  (see below)

See posters, notices, the website or Facebook for updates.

Star and Angel painting

Saturday morning November 27th 10 – 11.30 in the Church Garden if fine or in Church if the weather is too wet or windy.
