Christmas Angels

A mission initiative, which began in North Shields and Whitley Bay, is planned for the autumn with Churches Together in Ormskirk. Small, knitted, angels, with a Christmas message, will be distributed around the town just before Christmas. We hope that there will be hundreds if not thousands of them.  The Christmas story is filled with angels bringing joyful messages.  This is a great way for us to bring unexpected words to those who find them. We will launch officially at a ‘knit and natter get-together with cake’, at 2:00pm on Thursday, 21st September at Emmanuel Methodist United Reformed Church. Thank you.  Rev Sue Guenault
