Sanctuary in Chichester sponsored a tree at St Paul’s Church Christmas Tree Festival. Doves and snowmen made of white felt were decorated with paint and glitter by the children at our drop-ins during the lead up to the festival.
One volunteer created a fantastic felt ‘paper’ chain in Sanctuary colours, and a team of volunteers decorated the tree. Little knitted Christmas stockings were added, with messages of peace in Arabic and English for visitors to take, and some white twinkling lights. It looks beautiful!
The joy of this festival is in the huge number of 6ft Christmas trees lining the whole church, creating an amazing and festive atmosphere. The smell is incredible! And the sight is breathtaking.
The festival is only on until tomorrow, 7th December, so do try to pop in quickly if you have time.
