Helen Kirk: October 2016
We would like to share God's love through the message of Christmas in a new way this year. We would like people to knit/crochet angels — as many as possible, and in any colours — before 18th December. Each angel will then be given a small tag with a Christmas message from our church, and between 19th — 23rd December the angels will be given out or simply left around our community for people to take away. It is really easy to be involved — just take a pattern from the church vestibule or from the link below and get knitting/crocheting! We will place a box in the office for people to leave their angels. Or if you would like them to be collected, please phone the office and we will arrange it. So to start clicking your needles, click here.
