This Advent we want to share the good news that, no matter what happens, Christmas is NOT cancelled - because we know that the Hope and Joy we have when we celebrate Jesus’ birth cannot be squashed!

The plan is to light up a new window each evening at 4pm during the days of Advent (from 1st to 24th December). It will be like a giant Advent calendar.

You will be able to follow the trail of colourful windows through our community using a map showing the location of each window. The final ‘window’ will be revealed at St. Matthew’s Church on Christmas Eve. We’re very excited for this to be happening in our community. So many things are unable to happen this year, but this is COVID-safe!

However, to make this event happen we need your help! Do you live on the route shown on the map below? Would you like to decorate your window to be part of the trail?

The windows will be designed to look like colourful stained glass windows, made of tissue paper with silhouettes in black paper. All tissue paper, backing paper, sellotape etc. will be provided with no cost to the households who want to take part. There is also a ‘top tips’ guide to help you make your window the best it can be!

If you want to get involved, or for more information, get in touch! Email [email protected] or phone 07397 775388.
