A Thornbury church has taken a break from getting out and muddy to get ready for Advent.

A Thornbury church has taken a break from getting out and muddy to get ready for Advent.

St Mary’s normally runs a ‘Muddy Church’ but recently swapped that for a‘Muddy Nativity’, although for once those involved stayed inside as they prepared for Advent.   Organisers stepped away from the usual format of a Sunday afternoon walk and instead got busy with Christmas crafts.

Members of the congregation making advent candles with a natural wreath at the base ready for lighting on the 1st December. They also made a natural nativity scene using sticks and clay which can be viewed at the back of St. Mary’s Church. 

Muddy Church returns on Sunday 21 January 2:45pm at St. Mary’s. They will be putting their own take on the ‘Bristol Rocks’ project with our theme ‘Peter Rocks’; painting pebbles and placing them around Thornbury to be found by the community.
