Christmas Celebration - on Sunday 1st December between 3:00pm and 5:00pm there will be a Christmas Event on the site of the old school, on the corner of Rural Lane/Laird Road. This is a community event organised by the Friends of Wisewood group and is an opportunity to get alongside our neighbours. Stannington training band will be playing carols between 3:15pm and 3:45pm and help with the singing would be much appreciated. If anyone is able to help with the activities during the event or help with getting things ready from about 1:00 o'clock, this too would be most helpful. Do please try and support. Margaret P.
Advent Study Course 'Exploring our Christmas Carols' - on Monday 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd December at 7:30pm at Wisewood Church we'll be reflecting on the history and theology contained within the words we sing. Rev'd Katie.
HARC - The church will be sending a donation to HARC (Homeless and Rootless at Christmas) shortly. This charity provides a safe haven for vulnerable and homeless men and women between Christmas Eve and New Year's Day serving three hot meals a day along with other services such as a hairdresser, podiatrist, entertainment and a selection of clothing. They typically serve 2000 meals over the period the project operates when many other agencies are closed. If you would like to support this very worthwhile cause please see Di or Margaret P.
Greetings to All - As we have done in previous years, I will prepare a place at the back of the church for members to send their ‘greetings’ to friends and in doing so give a donation to charity. This year’s charity will be PARKINSONS UK. Please take this opportunity to support the charity and send ‘greetings’ to friends. Thank you. Margaret T.
Artworks Christmas Fayre - on Thursday 5th December between 12:30-3:00pm at St Polycarps Church, Malin Bridge S6 4WA. Please come and buy some amazing Christmas gifts, handcrafted by our talented artists at ‘Artwork’. Already done your Christmas shopping? Then just pop in for a drink and a piece of delicious cake.
