Last year, members from Kenilworth Church knitted and distributed Christmas Angels (article here). This year Warwick and Radford Road Churches have done the same.
Radford Road Church used their Christmas Angels to advertise their nativity exhibition (3rd — 7th December)
Warwick Church used theirs to advertise their Christmas Services. Members of the Northgate Create & Craft Group, led by Barbara Meddoms, knitted Christmas Angels and put them in transparent bags together with a Christmas card from the church and an invitation to Christmas Services. They labelled them "Please Take Me Home" and tied them, with an easily detachable strand of wool, to street furniture throughout Warwick town centre and at bus stops. It has been observed that several were taken within 24 hours of placement! — examples are shown below.
This is a novel way of letting ordinary members of the public know about the church and we encourage others to try it.
