Christmas 2020

Windrush Place Christmas Activities for all ages

We have planned a number of events and activities for all ages, to help make Christmas a more special time.

We look forward to seeing your creations and to singing carols with you at a distance in just a few weeks time.

The Christingle is fun to make and to eat then will be a perfect light for carol singing, with parent supervision of course!

Decorating Christmas windows can be done so many ways and helps to bring joy inside and outside our homes.

Whether you can join in or not, may I take the opportunity to wish you and your families a very merry Christmas.

Carol Windows

Decorate your window with  a scene from a carol and photograph it, ( with your family if you would like!)

Choose from Angels, Shepherds, Kings, Mary & Joseph by the Manger. 

Carols are; Hark the Herald Angels Sing, While Shepherds Watched their Flock by Night, We Three Kings, Away in a Manger, Once in Royal David's City.

Decorate your window in any way you want, or download the following attachments for more ideas on how to decorate your windows.

If you email your photo to us, your window will then be featured in a Windrush Place Carol Service shared on Youtube on Sunday 20th December.
