Christmas tree festival 2015

Happy Christmas everyone!

Our thanks to all the community groups and families who contributed a tree to the Christmas tree festival - it really is wonderful to see the church full of these beautiful creations. Over £700 was raised towards church funds, through donations, and sales of cakes, raffle tickets and teas and coffees.

It was great to see so many visitors coming in, and also to have such a full house for the crib service, and midnight mass.

Here are some photos from the 2015 Christmas Tree Festival, which took place on December 5th and 6th.

Reminder

Just a quick reminder of two FUNdraising events coming up.

Saturday at 7pm there is a brass band concert at St Edmund's Hardingstone
Wednesday 18th Coffee morning at Barbara Faux's
 

Christmas Lights Northampton




Thursday NOVEMBER 19TH 2015 – approximately 5.30 – 6.30.

(Northampton Market Place)

THE SWITCHING ON OF NORTHAMPTON TOWN CENTRE LIGHTS

WITH CAROLS BY THE SALVATION ARMY 
(NORTHAMPTON EAST BAND)

For many years there has been resistance to any sign at this event that Christmas is a Christian festival. This year, thanks to the co-operation of the Town Centre Manager, the Christian connection will be in evidence. This will be enhanced if a good number of Christians are there for the event.

So please do your best to be there and to encourage others to also come along.

Early notice for Christmas Tree Festival

You are invited to once again join us and marvel at the fabulous Christmas Trees in St John the Baptist Church, Piddington with Horton. What better way to start the Christmas season, apart that is from also joining us for the Wassail. We would love to see you all.

Coffee morning in aid of St John the Baptist, Piddington with Horton


Come and join us at this coffee morning, where there will be ample time to chat as well as enjoying coffee and cake. There is also some great early Christmas present buying opportunities, as the ladies from Knit and Natter have been busy with their needles making small gifts to sell in aid of the Makeni Centre in Lusaka, Zambia.
