On Saturday we had the launch of the festival of angels at Tewkesbury Methodist Church. It was a wonderful occasion, the children of Tirlebrook School were magnificent in their production of the nativity story and the songs they sung for us. After that I spoke briefly about angels as messengers of God and why they are such an important part of the Christmas story.
There have been so many creative contributions to our festival, I would urge you to go along if you can to see the display. The central feature is a huge angel made from used tea bags stitched together and back lit, this was the work of Gill Shelly, Jackie Dobbs and their team. Other contributions came from various sources around the town, other churches and groups within Tewkesbury Methodist Church. Refreshments including homemade angel cake were enjoyed by all.
