Christmas Tree Festival

For many years we have had Christmas Tree Festivals.

The church is filled with trees, decorated by community groups and local businesses. It is open to the public in December and local school children come on visits. It is an enjoyable way of making links with our neighbourhood.

Many visitors enjoy the event. Admission is free but visitors are invited to give donations which are shared between a charity and church funds. In 2019 we supported the CLIC Sargent Teenage Cancer Trust.

The 2019 theme was "WHERE'S JESUS?".

Children and young people from Sheffield Perfoming Arts and members of Endcliffe Orchestra who meet on our premises, performed musical items at our Lauch Event where we enjoyed  the "switch on" and shared hot punch and mince pies.

We were open to the public over the weekends in December.

Children from Y1 and Y3 came to visit from Holt House and Dobcroft Schools. They  looked at the trees and cribs, did a quiz, took part in group activities, heard the Christmas story and had a drink and a biscuit. 

     

SADLY, BECAUSE OF THE ON GOING UNCERTAINTY ABOUT GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES FOR CORONAVIRUS WE HAVE HAD TO CANCEL  A FULL-SCALE CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL FOR 2020

We are thinking creatively about possible small scale alternatives with some new way of trying to link in with the local community, but any planning has to be held back at this stage, in order for it to comply with the ever changing rules and guidelines

Please watch this space for any news of further developments.
