PREPARATION FOR CHRISTMAS
A Blue Plaque Nativity (The Blue Plaque is an English Heritage system for marking a link between a place and a famous event or person). We put a lot of effort into preparing to celebrate Christmas with buying presents, planning meals, marking concerts in our diaries, thus providing for the “outer man”. This is an opportunity to deepen our understanding of what lies behind our celebrations, thus providing for the “inner man”. Both sessions will be shared with our friends from St Wulstan’s Church and held at their Church Hall. The two sessions will look at the circumstances surrounding the birth of Jesus The first one will look at the marking the nativity with a Blue Plaque 2,000 years ago. (Date to be determined). The second one will look at the circumstances surrounding that Blue Plaque today. December 13th 2.30 pm at St Wulstan’s church Hall
Remembrance Sunday November 11th
CHRISTMAS ANGEL PROJECT 2018
Did you see the white knitted angels last year that appeared in and around Malvern early in the morning a few days before Christmas?
If so, you will know that each angel had a label tied to it with a Christmas message, and the invitation to ‘take me home’.
Around 560 angels were distributed and practically all were taken by lunchtime, which means that we need to make more this year, as so many folk were disappointed not to have found an angel.
The aim of the project is to share God’s love at Christmas and bless the community. The project is gaining momentum and is now carried out in several towns in Britain, see www.christmasangel.net
If you enjoy knitting or crochet and would like to be part of this year’s ‘Angel Project’ come along to Lansdowne Crescent Methodist Church Welcome Room on a Friday from 2-4pm, where there will be some folk from the church and friends meeting to knit and crochet the angels. The first ‘angel knit in’ will be on Friday 6th October. Wool and the simple angel pattern will be provided. All are welcome.
