Christmas in Wollaton

This year we will be unable to hold "Carols round the Pump" in the normal way BUT we are hoping that many will join together for "Carols round the Community" on Sunday 20th December at 6.30pm. Wollaton Churches will be streaming "Carols round the Community" and invite you to gather outside your homes, perhaps co-ordinating with others in your road, to join in singing some carols together.

We are also encouraging households or perhaps streets/roads to consider putting up a nativity scene in front windows, gardens or porches and then let us know what you have set up, and where, by sending a photo to slwollaton@gmail.com. We will then put together a "Nativity Trail" map which we hope many in the community might use to walk around Wollaton and enjoy looking at what has been set up as part of preparing for celebrating Christmas.

There will be Nativity scenes outside and inside St Leonard's. Families may like to come along with children in costume, and take a photo in front of the scenes.

Wollaton Churches will be holding other services. Please keep checking the church websites and look out for further information as we draw closer to Christmas.
