Members of Haworth Road Church were invited by St. Barnabas Church, Heaton to join in their Christmas Tree Festival and decorate one of the trees.
We accepted their invitation and were delighted to be part of a local community event. There were around 30 trees, all with lights provided. These were decorated by local churches, schools, businesses and individual families. (Our tree is the second from the left!!)
On Advent Sunday evening an Ecumenical and Community Carol Service was held. This was a fitting and moving way to end their Celebration Weekend and the trees remained in the Church until 4th January.
‘INN CHURCHES’ PROJECT FOR THE HOMELESS
We have also been involved in this project, which has now been extended to a wider number of churches. St. Martin’s was the venue for our area, for the week 12th -19th January and we provided a team on the Friday evening to make, and serve a hot meal and befriend the guests. This was a very moving and challenging experience for us all.
