2. Making Christmas Eve special – a Christingle Moment of Wonder

This year we are helping to make Christmas Eve extra special for the children of Dedworth by offering a short All Saints’ Special YouTube Christingle Celebration at 5pm that they can watch online with their families at home, followed by a 6pm Christingle Moment of Wonder outside their front doors in their streets.

Everyone in Dedworth is being invited to take part with Christingles or single candles. We hope that schools will help spread the word by including the invitation in their virtual newsletters to parents. In this way, the Christingles that the children have made in school will have a second use on that day, and each street will glow with Christmas Cheer as we herald the big day.

See our Christingle Page for more information and please share the link: https://allsaintschurchdedworth.com/christingle/

3. Christmas Card

Some 2500 Christmas cards will be distributed around the community through letterboxes and we will be bringing some hard copies into your school too, but one is also attached for you to be aware and, we are hoping, to include in your Christmas e-newsletter to parents.
