Advent calendars help to provide some anticipation as we get ready for Christmas. For many homes they are a tradition that goes on well after the children are grown up.

This Advent, as a church we will be taking part in a new initiative.  It’s an initiative that will see a giant living Advent calendar in Woolston. 

We are looking for local homes and public buildings that are willing to decorate a window for advent.  The aim is that we will have 24 windows.  The windows will be revealed one per day from 1-24 December; a bit like a living advent calendar.  The windows will be all around Woolston, and those decorating windows will be encouraged to hold a small informal event for their neighbours, at which they will offer simple refreshments and/or entertainment and also take a collection. Fifty percent of the collection will go to the householders chosen charity, and the other fifty percent will go to church.

Once we have got all 24 windows signed up we will release a map showing the location and reveal dates for each window.

The first window will be at The Mission and will be revealed at 4pm on Sunday 1stDecember, at the end of the Advent Market.

If you would like more information, or to be involved and decorate a window in your home, please download the information and application form.

The map and more details will be available to download from our website and Facebook page towards the end of November.
