A warm welcome to all…
To this, our 12th year of the Christ Church, Stone, Community Advent Calendar. We are excited and ready to see all the wonderful Advent Window displays this year and look forward to meeting everyone who is able to join in with this year’s event.
This year the displays will be up for the whole of December for you to enjoy around the town. Do follow the map and see if you can find all the windows!
We will, as in previous years, be ‘opening’ a window each day just like a traditional Advent Calendar, reading a section of our Christmas story and singing a Christmas carol. This will take place at 11.00am each morning and the locations for each day can be found on the next page. In addition, we will ‘virtually’ open a window each day on our Christ Church Face Book page, so you can still join in even if you cannot attend.
Do also join us on Christmas Eve – December 24th – from 9.30am when we will ‘sing our way up the High Street’ and revisit all the wonderful displays and sing as many Christmas carols as we can! We will start from Stone Pharmacy at 9.30am and finish at Christ Church at 11.00am for our final opening.
We would like to thank all the businesses who are allowing us to use their window space and all the schools, nurseries and organisations creating the artwork.
Our theme this year is ‘Seeking Jesus’ as we join the wise men on their journey to find the Christ Child – the promise of hope for all.
