Your Advent Calendar with a difference!

All Saints’ Church Family presents an advent calendar with a difference….

You’ll not find the pictures behind little paper doors – but in the windows of homes around our community. Each day somewhere in Clayton-le-Moors (or occasionally Altham or Great Harwood) will open up another window on Christmas. We hope you might like to go and find them as they go up during Advent – or perhaps go on a hunt to find them during a walk in Christmas week. Each window will be shared on its day on Facebook

We hope that these windows will bring everyone a little bit of Christmas cheer in what will be a strange and difficult Advent and Christmas 2020.

A great big thank you to those who have taken part and decorated their window.

With prayers that this Advent and Christmas bring you unexpected blessings even amidst the challenges of living through a pandemic.
