Advent Windows

Darkness is exciting, darkness is wonderful, darkness is kind, learned Jill Tomlinson's Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. 

Are you interested in decorating an Advent Window to light up the Kingshills for the festive season? Why not help people to enjoy the special winter-time darkness even more by creating an illuminated decorated window for this season?

How do I take part?
If you live in Great Kingshill, contact Bettina Gothard (bettina.gothard@gmail.com or tel. 715623) for details of how to join in.
If you live in Little Kingshill, read on and sign up if you want to take part.
  1. Make sure you have a window visible from the pavement to share with passers-by.
  2. Pick a week in December by which you will have switched your window on.
  3. If you need some inspiration, search the internet for "Advent Windows". You'll find examples that make use of black paper to create silhouettes, or of miniature dioramas behind a curtain, or coloured cellophane/ lighting gels/ tissue paper.  You might just hang some fairy lights in your windows in a beautiful shape! We can give you a couple of sheets of black A3 sugar paper to help get you started if you would like - there's a box to confirm you want this on our sign up sheet.
  4. Have fun creating your window and switch on!
If you'd like your address (no names published) to feature on a walking map that will be made public, simply confirm this when you complete your address on the sign up page on the church website.
Alternatively, just make a beautiful decorated window - there is no need to sign up if you don't want to!
