Christmas Angel

The Christmas Angels project originates in the work of FX pioneers and the Cullercoats and Whitley Bay Circuit where for the past 4 years they have been collecting knitted and crocheted angels from churches. In the week before Christmas they yarnbomb their local areas offering the message of hope that the angels announce in the Christmas story. People who find the angels are encouraged to take them and their message away with them as a gift.

Last year we left knitted angels as symbols of hope and peace around the Chester City walls.
It is not too late to knit an angel as part of your advent devotion and reflection
1. Pray for the project, for all groups who have caught this vision of a simple way to spread the Christmas message of hope to our communities.
2. Encourage anyone in your churches, family, friends, wider community connections and groups to get involved. The pattern for knitted and crocheted angels can be found at http://www.christmasangel.net/ or there are hard copies of the pattern available at Wesley. Please return any completed angels to Wesley by Friday 20th December.
3. We will be labelling angels on Friday 20th, commissioning them on Sunday 22nd and distributing them around the city walls on Tuesday 24th (Christmas Eve) morning, meeting at Wesley at 7am.

Any other queries don't hesitate to get in touch and I look forward to hearing from you.
God Bless
