The Christmas Angels project began in the North Shields and Whitley Bay Circuit. The idea is a simple one.
Knit or crochet or sew an angel.
Attach a message of hope to your angel.
Then place your angel somewhere public to be taken away.
The project has grown each year across the country.
2014 – 2870 Knitted
2015 – 20,586 Knitted, 20 churches
2016 – 41,000 Knitted, 120 churches involved with 60 churches giving feedback
2017 – 60,000 Knitted, 417 churches involved with 89 churches, organisations giving feedback
2018….. WHO KNOWS!!!
Liskeard Methodist Church have taken part in the project for the last 3 years and each year the number of angels shared with the people of Liskeard grows – 2017 we shared over 500. It’s an exciting moment when the angel team goes out early and places angels around the town for people to take away with them. Why not take part with your church? Share angels along your street, or even with your next door neighbour? It is a simple way of sharing the message of God’s love.
