The Real Advent Calendar

St Laurence Church PCC agreed to support Fairtrade’s ‘The Real Advent Calendar’. 

Reasons to do this are:-

  1. The Real Advent Calendar is a great way to share the Christmas Story. Each calendar comes with a FREE 24 page Christmas story-activity book. A line of the Christmas story behind each window and 25 festive chocolate shapes.
  2. Donations from the sales of this calendar will help equip a clinic in Kenya.
  3. And most importantly, “If Christ is being written out of Christmas – let’s put Him back by sharing the Christmas story”.
  4. Please support by buying a calendar for your child, grandchild, neighbour’s child, family member OR why not buy one for yourself!

Churches and groups receive free delivery for bulk orders placed before the 1st November.  Please sign the sheet to indicate your interest.  Monies will be collected later.   Further details speak to the Vicar, Sandra or the Church Office 753397
