Follow the Star!

Join in with Advent Windows bring your street to life –fill a window with Stars, Lights and decorations too!

From the end of November to Christmas Day we are in the season of Advent when we are preparing for and looking forward to the birth of Jesus. The story unfolds as we head towards Christmas and share the journey of Mary and Joseph and the donkey, the shepherds and the three kings as they all make their way to Bethlehem.

Join in this year by placing a ‘Follow the Star!’ Star in your window and see how many Stars you can find in windows around you.
