Reverse Advent Calendar

Advent has begun, carols are in the air and mince pies are at the ready as we countdown to celebrate the day when Jesus entered our world. He came for us. It was the most loving gift that God could give.

So in the spirit of giving we’re taking part in the Reverse Advent calendar for the Lewisham Food bank.

The calendar is full of ideas you can donate every day throughout advent to bless some of our neighbours who will really struggle this Christmas.

To make the calendar, simply print the two pictures below (A3 colour if possible), then cut around 3 of the 4 sides of each numbered square to make little doors. Finally stick this to the second page. Be careful not to glue the doors shut!

We’ll be collecting all the donations on Sunday 14th January at our 4pm service.Advent calendar FRONTAdvent calendar BACK

Make your own Christmas pudding or advent candle decoration!

Join us for an evening of festive making as we stir up Christmas puddings OR make Advent Candle table decorations. (You can choose your craft)

Bring along your own apron, wooden spoon and mixing bowl.

We’ll bring the ingredients, recipe and crafts.

Together we will measure, pour, stir, stick and chat with a short Christmas talk by Lizzie Smallwood.
