Christmas confessions and photo competition

02 November 2012

Christmas confessions

Have you dropped the baby Jesus, failed to book an organist for midnight mass, or set fire to anything at the candlelit service (other than candles)? Or perhaps you know of some Advent mishap in the next-door parish.

Some stories are just too good to keep to yourselves, and confession is very cleansing - as well as amusing for us. We are looking for true anecdotes for our Christmas issue. Please email: editor@churchtimes.co.uk, with "Confessions" in the subject box, by Monday 3 December. Anonymity guaranteed.

Photo competition

WE ARE also asking readers to submit photos for publication in our Christmas issue. There is Fairtrade chocolate for every one that we publish. The theme is "Crib".

Please email your photos to editor@churchtimes.co.uk, with "Christmas photo" in the subject line. The photo must be a high-resolution jpeg (500KB and above); it should be your work, and you should obtain permission for any minor in the photo. The deadline is Monday 3 December.
