Alton Yuletide Festival 1st and 2nd December

Home » News » Alton Yuletide Festival 1st and 2nd December

As many of you will know this event brings many people into the town centre to enjoy the festive activities and Christmas Stalls.
As a church we hope to be very much engaged in this event and opportunity to be a part of the community.

On the Saturday Morning we will run Messy Church from 9.30-11am with a Festive Theme.
We also hope to enter a 'Methodist Team' into the Santa Run on the Saturday following the success of beating the Anglican Team last year! Liam will also be defending the individual title that he won last year.

On the Sunday, we will have one service at 9.15am and then instead of a second service — we aim to use the opportunity to invite people from the Festival in for Refreshments and for the children to make decorations to decorate the Christmas Tree.

Please do come along and support this opportunity to be 'Church in the Community.'
