Follow the Star 2019
The diocesan Communications Department is supporting the church’s national Christmas campaign – Follow the Star – by offering hand-made Christmas stars that can be used as a way of inviting people to a Christmas/Advent service.
We have a limited quantity of the locally-made ceramic stars that are supplied in a gift bag with a card carrying a Christmas message and a link to the diocesan website, that will carry a list of services and events.
Churches can, of course, put their own cards into the bags with details of their services and an invitation to Christmas events.
Congregations are encouraged to give the stars to neighbours, friends and family as a way of inviting them to church at Christmas.
The number of stars available is limited and are offered on a first come, first served basis. The number available to each church will depend on the number of requests we receive (last year it was around 30).
To order your stars please contact Nicola Mellors: firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for orders is 5pm on Tuesday 26th November.
Also, please let Nicola have details of your Christmas services and events.
