Tapton Hill Advent Calendar
Following the success of last year we have repeated the use of an Advent Wall to collect for our nominated charities.  24 boxes are placed in church and instead of removing surprises users of the church bring gifts for three local charities: The MAHER Project in India, The Good News Family Care Centre for victims of domestic abuse, Chocolate Box.
This was not a wall that divides but unites, bringing all users of the church together in making donations.  Though only a small contribution we pray it will help to make someone happier or at least more comfortable.
