To get involved all you need to do is to decorate one (or more!) windows in your house, flat or workplace, the bigger and brighter the better so people can see your fantastic displays. All you need to do is choose which part of the Christmas story you would like to do, sign up and get designing your window!

 

To give everyone the best chance of seeing your window we would encourage you to put your display up and leave it up throughout advent.

 

 

We will create a map that shows where all the windows are so that you can walk around and visit them all. Lets share the hope we have in Jesus and light up Walton-on-Thames with the Christmas story.

 

 

SIGN UP HERE, choose which day you would like and we’ll send you a pack with the story, a number to display with your decorations and some instructions. We’ll also send you a link to the trail guide map.

 

Choose your day!
