Church spruces up for Christmas
1:20pm Friday 21st December 2012 in News
A WORCESTER church has turned itself into a forest of Christmas trees as it hosts its sixth annual festive festival.
St Martin’s, London Road, is playing host to more than 25 trees which have been provided and decorated by groups and organisations connected with the 100-year-old church.
The festival of Christmas trees opened its doors at the start of the week and will be open between 10am and 4pm every day until Sunday, January 6.
Shirley Scott, one of the festival organisers, said: “We start early in December because all the local primary schools hold their Christmas services here, as well as the London Road Playgroup Nativity play.
“We’ve already had two of our four Christmas concerts and the trees in the church really add to the festive atmosphere.”
Other Christmas events coming up at St Martin’s include an informal coffee concert which will be held tomorrow between 10.30am and 11.30am when the Hallow Handbell Ringers perform some festive favourites.
St Martin’s will also be hosting a candlelit carol service which will start at 6.30pm on Sunday.
On Christmas Eve, there will be a Christmas crib service at 5pm and midnight mass at 11.30pm.
