The Mitten Tree 2016

Now we’ve hit party time at Wilson Memorial, and are really celebrating Christmas with all the fun  and excitement you can imagine.  There’s loads going on at Wilson Memorial Church, so why not check out our Christmas 2017 Program click here to go to our special Christmas page. and hopefully we’ll see you at one of our fantastic special Christmas events.

The mitten tree is bursting with colour now, as lots and lots of scarves, hats, and gloves have been donated.  Once the tree is full, we will be handing out the cosy woollens to clients of our basics bank and other locals who are in a time of misfortune.  If you would like to donate an item to the mitten tree, please bring it along any time the church is open.
