Today we launched our Christmas tree festival at Tewkesbury Methodist Church with a wonderful performance of the Christmas story by Tirlebrook Primary School. What a wonderfully uplifting time this was! The children gave us a fantastic version of the story and the glorious costumes added to the lovely visual effect of it all.
The backdrop to the performance was Christmas tree festival where we have about 30 trees on exhibition. If you find your self in Tewkesbury over the next week or so do pop in to see the trees we are open from; Tuesday 10th December until Saturday 21st December…. 10:00 – 12:00 a.m. and 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
As usual Tewkesbury Methodist Church played its part in the Town festival in which the Christmas lights are switched on. We welcomed one and all to come in our of the cold for free refeshments and use of the facilities. We also had lots of crafts and ativities for people to get involved with. There were some great performances by the Trinity Puppets and wonderful carol singing to round it all off.
The church was packed to the rafters for the afternoon which is just how we like it and a really food time was had by all. I went out for a walk by the cross, just before the lights were switched on, with the intention of photographing the lights but I was captivated by how beautiful our town looked even before the Christmas lights went on so I took these pictures instead. You have to admit, Tewkesbury is a very photogenic town.
