Parish calendar

11 January 2013

I AM not sure about any chocolate, but the parish of Hinchley Wood, in Guildford diocese, came up with an original idea for an Advent calendar during December. Twenty-four families each chose a Christmas carol and a date for their "window" to open. With an A3 piece of mountboard and a string of fairy lights, each family contributed to a vibrant and diverse Advent calendar around the parish, the Revd Caroline Mullins says.

The "window" for 23 December was a particularly lively example, and the final one was opened in St Christopher's on Christmas morning.
