Christ Church made sure the Sanctuary was looking really festive for Advent to welcome all visitors to the Christmas bazaar. Thanks go to the small group of people led by Sara Skinner who came together on the 25th November to decorate the sanctuary.
Thanks also to the many people who manned the “tables”. Some of the tables invited a selection of guessing games, other tables had a variety of items including a table of largely Christian jewellery etc, manned by Tony Fensome; another table manned by Val & Linda had potted Hyacinths and Christmas tree decorations for sale, among other things.
Naturally a lot of preparation is required for such an event, and Christ Church is grateful to all those who gave freely of their time and effort to bring things together.
The money earned and donated to Christ Church totalled £241.49. A small amount was collected for Junior Church and another small amount for Rainbows.
As we all appreciate, the real purpose of the Christmas Bazaar this year is not so much to earn money but to make Christ Church visible within this community.
We were happy to see a few visitors we had not seen before and others we see regularly at events held by Christ Church, for this we can recognise the day as a success.
