Christmas For Widnes

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Community Carol Concert

Clear your diary on Saturday 17th December from 6pm because there’s one place you want to be and that is at the FCC Community Carol Concert 🌟 An evening of Festive Fun, Carols, Christingle and Giveaways, followed by Festive Food and Entertainment, this is an evening NOT to be missed! You MUST book a ticket for the Community Carol Concert and we expect it will sell out very quickly, so tell your family and friends, and book your ticket ASAP by clicking here. 

During our Community Carol Concert we will take a moment to honour those who have lost their lives in the last year by creating a Photo Montage. If you would like us to feature a photo of someone, please send their name and photo to [email protected] by 13th December.

Christmas Choir

As the classic film Elf says, “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” So we would love to put together an FCC Christmas Choir to do just that! The Choir will be meeting to rehearse on Thursday 24th November and there’ll be 3 opportunities throughout December where the Choir will be spreading Christmas Cheer through Carol Singing. If you’d like to join our Christmas Choir – Click here to sign Up!

 

Christmas Jumper Sunday

Sunday 18th December will be our last Sunday Gathering for 2022, and we would love you to join us for an All Age Advent Service with traditional Carols, a Christmas story, readings and Festive Refreshments. 🥧 We’d also love you to wear your best (or worst) Christmas Outfit (there might even be a prize for the best dressed!) There’s no need to book in, just come along and invite your community to come along with you to our final service of the year.

Stuff The Sleigh

This Christmas we are seeking to help our community in partnership with the Hygiene Bank by joining the #ItsInTheBag appeal, collecting bags of toiletries to go to people in need in our community. We’re asking you to fill a strong bag with toiletries and hygiene products suitable for either a woman, man, girl or boy and label the bag to state who it is suitable for. You can bring your donations to church throughout December and drop them in the sleigh. 💟

Who is the Hygiene Bank?

The Hygiene Bank do brilliant work in our community to support people having to make tough decisions in life. Many people locked in poverty or those who find themselves in times of crisis often experience restricted options. This leaves them caught between being able to heat their home, pay their rent, buy food or keep clean. Hygiene poverty can be shaming, humiliating and excluding and can result in social isolation.

It can lead to a lack of confidence and can negatively affect good health and mental well-being which can impact early childhood development, learning, employability and social interaction.

Products are donated, collected, sorted and distributed to their network of community partners – a mix of organisations, charities and schools – who support anyone pulled into poverty.

Supporting The Hygiene Bank is a simple way to help not just one organisation, but multiple grassroots initiatives across the UK tackling a wide range of issues from poverty to domestic abuse and disability.

New Year’s Day Walk

We wan’t to make sure we don’t set off without anyone, so please let us know if you’ll be coming and indicate if you require help with transport. Click Here to sign up 🌲
