This Christmas as a church we wanted to make sure the story of advent was getting out to our community. We asked around for some ideas for how we could do this and a few people thought it would be fun to do an Advent calendar in people's windows and that seed of an idea has grown into the ‘Battersea ADVENTure trail’.
24 shops, schools and organisations in our area will be having advent boards in their windows. On their day of Advent they will ‘open’ their windows and display an Advent picture which will take us on a journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem and all around Battersea!
There will be trail maps to download here at the end of November. Follow the clues to find the Advent windows. Each window will have a code letter, put this into your trail map to find the Christmas phrase and we’ll give the first 10 entered a prize!
We’ve had pictures designed by Christchurch school, Rock Solid, St Peter’s Youth and the staff got involved too.
We’d love you to get involved: follow the trail, post about it on social media and tell your friends too!
