This Advent is going to be different! Whatever happens with COVID 19, it’s unlikely to mean business as usual. We’ve become used to doing things from our own homes, so how about celebrating Advent in a similar way, with a trail of Advent Windows leading up to a grand finale outside St. Margaret’s church on Christmas Eve?
To make this work, we will need 24 volunteers to set up a window in their home or place of work on each of the 24 days from 30th November (the Monday after Advent Sunday) until 23rd December.
Occupants will be free to be as creative as they wish, each setting up their window on a particular day and leaving their creation in place to enable people to admire it at their leisure. Windows will need to be visible from the road or pavement, with no social mixing involved.
This year’s theme will be Christmas Carols. There will be a list of suggestions in church, and a list of dates. To participate in this exciting venture, all you need to do is to sign up with your name and address against your chosen date, choose your carol, and get creating. You can even do more than one if you wish. Don’t worry about overlaps – two or more people may choose the same carol, but their interpretation is bound to be different.
Please think about signing up as early as possible, so that there is plenty of time for us to produce a map and schedule of windows. If you are not comfortable about visiting the church at the moment, please contact Jill Bell on 521699 or email to reserve your slot.
Together we can offer the people of our parish a reminder of the true meaning of Advent as we prepare to receive again the good news of our Saviour’s birth.
