Nativity sets and angels

Nativity Sets and Angels

By popular demand the three day Nativity, Angel and Star Festival is taking place in St Cuthberts Church, Wells on Friday 7th - Sunday 9th December.  Our Festival is stewarded throughout.

Each year we try to have something different. Do you have a Nativity Set or an Angel that has not been on display before? Each set or Angel has a story to tell and often has great sentimental value. We would love you to share that story with us.

Nativity Sets can be very different. This one was rescued from a bombed school during WW2. Perhaps you have a special one made by a child, or one that has come from abroad. 

Please speak to Fay Low or Suzy Vivash (Angels), or ring the Parish office if you would like to take part.


Perhaps you have been busy knitting poppies and now need something new to tackle as the nightss draw in?

Well, here's an idea. Come and make some angels for our Festival in December, and at the same time recycle some of our old hymn books.

Rosemary Cooke, who has run workshops at the Bishop's Palace, is coming to lead a session for us on Saturday 3rd November. It will take place from 9.30 - 12.30 with breaks for coffee and cake. The idea is that by the end of the morning we will have learnt the technique of paper foldind and have made and decorated an angel. Then we can start making more at home to create an impressive heavenly host!

The cost for the morning will be £4.00, which will cover the materials and include refreshments.
