Thanks to those volunteers who met in the Market Place at 5:00am on Monday 18th December to set loose our Christmas Angels in town.

750 of our knitted messengers of love, light, hope, peace and joy were placed and hidden around the centre of Wantage, ready to be discovered and taken home. They had been prayed over and blessed during the nativity service the day before.

We are very grateful to all our knitters who have been working so hard these past few months and to Carolyn for organising the whole thing — thank you!

Keith reported that on his way to the dentist for 8:00am, many angels had already been taken and that he had seen shopkeepers, commuters, school children and those waiting for the shops and offices to open all holding one, and more importantly, smiling.

Angels from the realms of glory,
wing your flight o'er all the earth;
ye who sang creation's story
now proclaim Messiah's birth:
Come and worship,
Christ the new-born King,
come and worship,
worship Christ, the new-born king.

James Montgomery
