Hanwell Advent Trail 

Working in collaboration with our friends at St Christopher's, St Mellitus and St Thomas' we want to fill Hanwell with the light and love of Jesus this Advent by turning our 4 parishes into a giant Advent Calendar.

When and where will this take place?
Inspired by the image of Christ as a light in the darkness, the trail will be running from the 1st December until Christmas. We will be sharing a map of all our officially numbered houses (street names only) so you will be able to go on a walk to hunt for windows on the trail.

How to get involved...
We have the 6 volunteers from our parish in place and they will be given an official A4 numbered star to add to their window displays.   But everyone can take part in the fun - simply download the poster here (click here) and pop it in your window and get creative.  Your display can be funny, colourful, nativity based or santa filled, but will hopefully bring some "Comfort & Joy" (the Church of England's Christmas theme this year). If you're short on ideas, try googling "advent windows" and see what others have done in their neighbourhoods...

Most of all have fun and enjoy yourselves !  May the birth of the Christ-child lighten the darkness for us all at the end of this challenging year.
