At St Anne’s our Christmas trees arrived on 10 December. Christmas Trees in general, but especially in churches, are a relatively modern invention! Although they look ‘traditional’ they’ve only been around for about 100 years or so. Nonetheless, their power and symbolism are strong, reminding us of the light of Christ shining into the dark wintry world. We will be blessing and formally lighting our Christmas trees on Sunday 16 December at 6.30pm during the Christmas Carol Service. Please do join us!
