Long Ditton shines!
St Mary’s Church invites everyone in the village to spread a little joy this Christmas by making stars to display in their windows during advent.
For many people, Christmas will look a little different this year. It will be hard for friends and families to meet up, and some of us may even find ourselves in isolation or quarantine during a season which usually brings people together. Which is why St Mary's wanted to try and spread a little joy throughout the village, and remind people they are not alone.
From Advent Sunday on 29th November, join with us to brighten every street by making a star to display in your window. It can be as big or small as you like, and you can use anything you have handy: paints, crayons, lights, glitter... the limit is your imagination!
We've chosen the symbol of a star because for us as Christians it reminds us of the star that the wise men followed to find the baby Jesus, who came to bring joy to the world. But it's also a symbol that holds meaning for people of other faiths and none. Stars can represent hopes, dreams, wishes... all things we all need more than ever this year. We hope looking at these stars will bring light and hope to all at the end of a dark year.
