Dear Kids and Parents,
let us mark this Advent and Christmas season together! We have set up a Christmas tree in our church, which is just in a comfortable walking distance from you. The challenge is this. Make one or two simple Christmas-tree decorations, and on one Saturday or Sunday afternoon, or even on a week-day, visit our church and put your decoration on our Christmas tree. Then you can make a photo or selfie of it:) From 20 December our Crib will be already on - only the Baby Jesus will be missing from it till Christmas Day. Come over when it is comfy for you (apart from Nursery Hours Mo-Fri 9 am-3 pm you can come any day till 6 pm).
At the back of your decoration, just leave your first name, and a 'fantasy name', like 'butterfly'. There will be a competition whose tiny decoration Santa and the Baby Jesus liked most. Winners will be announced on this Facebook:) and on our homepage www.saintaugustinecolindale.com
There will be a box next to our tree, into which you can put your message for Santa, or your prayer request. If you would like to remember someone, just leave a note under the Christmas tree. You can light a candle also, if you wish. Adults can also write a letter to Santa, 'What is my hope for Colindale and the estate where I live?'
So why not visit a 'mystery house', our lovely Church. Venue: Saint Augustine's Church, NW9 5SY, Great Field. If you come by car, please, use the the church's parking lots (right on the side of the church.)
