NATIVITY CRIB FESTIVAL - Saturday 30th November & Sunday 1st December - 11.00am. till 5.00pm.

Once again, we kick the festive season off to a great start with our truly amazing Nativity Crib Festival.  We will be filling the church with as many cribs as we can persuade people to lend us (last year we had almost 200).  They come from all around the world, are every shape and size and are made from everything you could imagine (including citrus peel and banana leaves!).  Best of all each has its own "story" saying why it is important to its owner.

We will also have a "living Crib".  Use our dressing up clothes to create your own nativity scene (if you take a photo it will make a beautiful, personal Christmas Card).

Naturally we will be serving delicious cakes and you have the chance to win a crib of your own.  Entry is £3, children are free and there is parking on the school playground.  If you have a crib we could borrow or could hand out flyers please contact Barbara.

If you could help on the weekend (we have slots 11-1, 1-3 and 3-5 on both days) or if you could make a cake (we are looking for iced versions - they look so much more tempting - of the following:- Chocolate, Lemon, Coffee, Carrot and Ginger, preferably 8" round!!).  Please keep your eyes open in church for sign-up sheets or contact Mary Hooper, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thank you to everyone for your generous harvest donations.  St. Ippolyts Church looked and smelled wonderful with an assortment of both fresh produce and a variety of groceries.

We are very grateful to Friends who were available on Monday morning to clear and pack the produce into boxes and to St. Ippolyts School children who also came into the church to prepare food gift boxes and write a friendly note to accompany their gift.  These were delivered to our own friends in St. Ippolyts for different reasons.  We wanted to give them a harvest present, to say we are thinking of them.  The main bulk of the groceries was taken to the Homeless Shelter in Hitchin and was very gratefully received.  The remaining boxes were delivered to the Food Bank in Letchworth.

Both the Homeless Shelter and the Food Bank are always grateful to receive groceries throughout the year and we are reminded of those less fortunate than ourselves.

Dairy Date:

We will be decorating the church for Christmas on Saturday 21st December from 9.30am.  This will include the flowers.  Please come and help if you can.  Further details will be in December Pax.
