Thank you to everyone who helped to make the knitted Christmas Angels project such a success.

We certainly succeeded in our aim of sharing God's love and blessing the community with our little angels and their attached Christmas messages.

It was a wonderful sight to see all 750 of them around the church when they were blessed at the service on 17 December.

Little did we realise as we put them out at 5 am on Monday 18 December how quickly they would be picked up and what pleasure they would bring.

By 9:30 am there was not an angel to be seen!

The Knit & Chat group which met to knit angels is continuing to meet in the Parlour at Wantage.

At present we are knitting items to be sent to various charities who will send them on to help disadvantaged communities around the world.

We are intending to knit angels for Christmas 2018 and will start in earnest later in the year.

Knit & Chat —
Monday 5 February and Monday 19 February
Monday 5 March and Monday 19 March
