Tree-mendous effort at Winchester's United Church
11:40am Tuesday 10th December 2013 in News
THE United Church in Jewry Street, Winchester, has gone to town on Christmas trees this year and have not one, or two, but 19 of them in their upstairs sanctuary.
Debbie Borda, the minister of the United Church, said: “Christmas trees may not necessarily be regarded as a specific Christian symbol, but their presence during the Christmas season can still draw our thoughts to the actual meaning of Christmas.
“Nineteen trees might seem a little excessive, but we enjoy the variety of decorations on the trees.”
Each of the trees has been decorated by members of the different groups in the church, from beautifully stitched nativity figures from the Craft Group, to beer mats from the Men’s Group, with contributions from the Junior Church, Toddlers, and hospitality groups to name but a few.
The church will be open to visitors Monday to Saturday from 10am-2pm until December 21, closing at noon on the final day.
