“Anniversaries”
Friday 6, Saturday 7 & Sunday 8 December

We are just a few weeks away from our Christmas Tree Festival, with a Craft & Gift Fair on the Saturday.  Again this year we are supporting London’s Air Ambulance Charity.  All proceeds, less expenses, will be donated to the charity.

For three days during December our church will be filled with a spectacular display of about forty decorated Christmas trees and lights, representing “Anniversaries” in recognition of the 30th anniversary of London’s Air Ambulance and our 5th Festival.  It will be another fantastic event when we welcome a great many visitors to Trinity.

Our theme this year is “Anniversaries”.  2019 marks the 30th anniversary of London’s Air Ambulance, and our 5th Festival.  If you would like to sponsor a tree for £60 and decorate it to mark an anniversary (we can supply a list of suggestions) or your own special day/year please contact us as soon as possible. We are looking forward to some interesting tree decorations!

If you, or anyone you know, would be interested in having a stall at our Saturday Craft & Gift Fair please contact Elizabeth Scharinger, Church Administrator (office@trinitywimbledon.org) as soon as possible.

We do hope you will wish to support the Festival and London’s Air Ambulance Charity again.  If you would like to know more about the Festival please contact Catherine Paul at christmastreefestival@trinitywimbledon.org.

We very much look forward to celebrating with you.
