Cowley festival of Christmas trees 2020

Saturday 11th - Sunday 20th December 2020

"Joy to the World"  

at St. James Church, Beauchamp Lane, Cowley

As we move from months of lockdown and social distancing, we are delighted to be planning the 2020 festival, looking forward to be 'being community' again although aware we may have to adapt the format.

We invite you to be involved as a community group, school, club, family or just yourself, to provide and decorate a small tree or add an angel to the heavenly host which we hope will fill the church and bring joy to Cowley. 

You may like to start being creative during the summer break! 

Then come along with family and friends and view the magical display, hear live music, enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and cake, join our worship services and make a donation if you wish. We will wait to see whether the concert, Messy Church, pop up choir  etc can go ahead. There will be an angel trail in Templars Square shop windows.  

Our 'Cowley United' festival in 2019 raised £1,500 shared between our two local children's charities, 

ROSY and SeeSaw (see links below)
