Christmas time will soon be upon us and what a celebration it is. We wanted to join the community together after the year we have all experienced to celebrate the truth, light, peace and hope we believe Jesus brings. We want to do this by focusing on the Bethlehem star; what a big role it had in leading the wise men to Jesus.
Our aim is that as many people as possible put a Bethlehem star in their window. As well as being a fun activity for everyone to take a walk around the neighbourhood spotting the amazing stars, it also reminds us that we believe that Jesus is in every place, heart and home.
Alongside this, we would love you all to have a go at creating a star using recyclable materials in your house that can be placed on the trees outside St Barnabas Church. Again this is another way of bringing the community together for what will be a very different Christmas for us all.
We believe that Jesus is born anew wherever love, kindness and hope are made welcome.
We cannot wait to see what you all create. Please feel free to use the templates included and if you would like to send any pictures of your decorated windows please put them onto our Facebook page.
The poster, templates and link to our Facebook page are on the right.
