Dates for your diary!

 

6th December to 4th January 2018
Christ Church Christmas Tree Festival returns!

Come along and see the trees donated and decorated by the many groups within our church fellowship, the Missions we support and the many friends and groups from the community who use our Church regularly.

Hope Now is a mission that supports many, including orphaned children in the Ukraine. As one of the missions that Christ Church supports, we are this year collecting Christmas gifts to be brought in to place beneath the tree between 6th December, when the trees will be on display, until the Christmas Carol service on 17th December. After the Carol service, the gifts will be transported to Southampton, to their distribution depot after the service, to reach the children for their Christmas as the Ukraine celebrates Christmas in January. Gifts should be for a child, unwrapped, and placed in a Christmas bag. This is to ensure they get through the border checks, and that the people distributing them can give them to the most appropriate age group and gender etc.

All donations, as well as knitted goods for children, gratefully received!
