Holy Trinity Church in Wordsley are taking their popular Christmas Tree Festival online this year to enable people to continue to be involved safely.

Until Saturday December 12, the Church will be posting Christmas trees from a range of organisations in the community on their Facebook page and are encouraging as many people as possible to get involved.

The Revd Colin Jones, Vicar of Holy Trinity, said: “Like many things, the pandemic has stopped us being able to have a Christmas Tree Festival in person this year, but we still wanted to do something to try to generate the community spirit which has been so appreciated in previous years.

“Taking our festival online enables more people to get involved and show off their Christmas trees!”

Schools, community groups, businesses, families and individuals are all welcome to post a picture of their Christmas Tree in the comments section of a special pinned posts in the Holy Trinity, Wordsley Facebook page.

Organisations are also able to write a sentence about themselves if they wish to. Those participating can make a contribution to church finances if they wish to.

Sharon Gill, who usually displays ‘the wedding tree,’ said: “I know we can’t put a tree up in church this year but I think it is great that we can keep the spirit of the festival alive with our photos.”

The Lace Guild commented: “This year it is very important that we spread a little joy and happiness wherever possible and the Lace Guild would love to be a part of this.”
