Living Advent Calendar
There will be 24 different doors dotted around Harwell and 24 around Chilton. Visiting each house, children will get a chocolate & sticker and hear the next instalment of the Christmas story. It's festive, fun and free.
Thursday evenings from 28th November - 19th December at St Matthew's
We will start with tea and coffee, a short time of worship, and then a video to introduce the story that will then be discussed in small groups (along with further refreshments!). The groups will then come back together to share some of their thoughts with those in other groups, and we will finish at 9.30pm.
