Seeing Lives Transformed through Faith in Christ
Advent Windows is back with a twist for 2022! From the 1st December through to Christmas Eve, there will be 12 opportunities to see lit displays revealing the first Christmas story. There will be host windows (details below) where you can enjoy seasonal refreshments between 6 and 8pm and you will need to find a letter which will reveal a Christmas message after 11 windows. Please note the windows are only staying switched on for one night!
You can download the Follow the Star trail to collect the letters here.
We have spread the windows throughout Toton and we’re inviting everyone to join in. If you live close to one of the hosts, you are invited to decorate and light your window on the night. We have shared details of the themes for each evening to give you some inspiration but if you’d just like to decorate with stars to show you’re joining in, that would be great!
