Christmas Tree and Nativity Festival
This year our Christmas Tree Festival will look a little different to previous years with some exciting new additions alongside our traditional Christmas trees. This year we are also inviting individuals to create a nativity scene within a household object.
What better way to start the Christmas festivities than wandering around the beautifully decorated trees and admiring the creativity of the nativity scenes?
There will of course be the opportunity to enjoy a drink and a tasty treat, with a warm Christmas punch added to the menu; as well as a small gift shop should you need a final stocking filler. If that isn’t enough, there will be a service amongst the trees on the Sunday morning at 11am.
We will also be launching our festival with a Christmas Quiz on Thursday 7th December starting at 7pm which will include our official Christmas Tree Light switch-on. Tickets for this will be £2 per person and will include non-alcoholic mulled wine and nibbles.
Friday 8th December – 10am – 6pm
Saturday 9th December – 10am – 6pm
Sunday 10th December – 1pm – 3:30pm
Monday 11th December – Open to Schools by appointment
We are accepting trees, up to 6ft in height, from businesses and community groups decorated in a theme of your choice. We are asking that any lights are mains powered where possible.
The Church will be open on Wednesday evening (4pm – 8.30pm) and during the day on Thursday (10am – 4pm) for you to set up the trees and again on the following Tuesday (2pm – 8pm) for you to collect your tree.
As in previous years we are asking businesses to pay £15 for their tree. The £15 fee can be paid by cheque payable to PCC of Christ Church or by bank transfer to sort code: 40-52-40, account number: 00013189 please quote the reference ‘Christmas Tree’ together with your surname or business name.

This year we are challenging you to create a nativity scene within a household object. Be as creative as you like, and you may include battery lights if you wish. Please ensure that they are no larger than 0.5mx0.5mx0.5m.
These will be judged by our specially selected panel of judges with prizes being awarded to the best ones. There is no charge for the nativity scenes.
