Rachel Borgars: January 2017
Hosts of knitted angels appeared around the Circuit in the week before Christmas!! They were the work of many devoted knitters across several churches and some ecumenical partners. Inspired by a project in the North Shields and Whitley Bay Methodist Circuit, the idea behind them is to share God's love and to bless the community in public places and community spaces with a Christmas message.
The project has received many positive comments and we hope to repeat it again next year... a total of over 800 angels were shared this year — thank you to all the knitters and those who shared them out!
