Deacon Al Henry of Middleton Methodist Church has sent us details of an idea he’s come up with to put “CHRIST” back into Christmas.
He’s aiming to to work together with local people in Middleton and Belle Isle to put on a special community festival involving schools, community groups, churches and individuals.
Ideas include businesses and shops being encouraged to dress their windows with nativity scenes, along with individual homes.
There could be a weekend Christmas community event, nativity scenes from around the world and decorated windows in people’s homes for each day of Advent. Deacon Al says:
“I would like feedback from individuals, schools, churches and groups if this is a possible idea for our community and seek your advice, help and assistance on the matter.”
