Christmas Tree Festival

We’re all set to go – so do come along: Saturday 16th 10am to 4pm, Sunday 17th 11.30am to 4pm

This year we are holding our first ever Christmas Tree Festival in St Mary’s Kidlington for two days, concluding with the Community Carol Service at 5.30pm on the 17th. We are hoping that organisations and individuals will sponsor and decorate their own tree and fill the church with Christmas joy. The theme is “The Spirit of Christmas”, and the money raised will go to this year’s chosen charities, SANDS and EDUKID. SANDS seeks to reduce the number of babies dying and supports anyone affected by the death of a baby, during or shortly after birth: www.sands.org.uk. EDUKID, a charity set up by a former youth worker in the parish, works to remove the barriers to education faced by children living in poverty and conflict: www.edukid.org.uk.

Refreshments will be available throughout the weekend.
