Light, love and hope in Killamarsh

For Advent, the people of Killamarsh have been invited to decorate windows and light up the North East Derbyshire village.

And in conjunction with the Killamarsh Christmas Community Project 2020 themed on Light, Love and Hope, Revd Helen Guest contacted local nursing homes, nurseries and schools offering Christmas resources.

The response has been extremely positive and plans are being made to distribute the gifts in early December.

The idea of the gifts has offered Light, Love and Hope.

St Giles’s Church will be offering Bethlehem Carol Sheets and CDs to the residents and staff of the two nursing homes, copies of My Mini Bible Sticker Book Christmas to 123 children who attend nursery and the 603 school children will receive ‘Meet the Cast’ booklets.

The CofE Comfort and Joy booklets will be distributed to the local community on behalf of St Giles.

Killamarsh Methodists are also supporting by handcrafting beautiful Christmas stars with a gift tag of Matthew 2:2: "We have seen his star in the east and have come to worship Him. May you find Christ’s peace, joy and fellowship this Christmas."

The stars will be given to the staff and residents of the nursing homes, nurseries, schools, and the St Giles community.

As part of the project, candles will be distributed across the village with enough for every key worker, as a thank you for being ‘lights of Killamarsh’ and continuing to shine through this pandemic.
