Christmas: the miracle of the method

11:00am at Wilson Memorial Church

Christmas Countdown

Mitten Tree 2019

Over the coming days and weeks we have lots of special celebrations taking place at Wilson Memorial Church.  For full details of our Christmas 2019 Program click here to go to our special Christmas page. 


We also have our mitten tree, back again for the fourth year in a row to collect donations of hats, scarves, and gloves for locals in need this winter.  As we progress through advent, we hope to see the mitten tree transformed from a bare undecorated tree, to one covered in a magnificent assortment of hats, scarves and gloves.

Christmas MiracleAt the start of this weeks service we will light the third advent candle, the candle of Joy,  Each week while we journey through Advent towards Christmas, another candls will be lit.
