Advent Calendar & Christmas Charity Appeal

For nearly 20 years, our Advent Calendar has acted as as the focus for our Christmas Charity Appeal, ‘opening doors for people in need’. The money raised goes to our three 2021 charities and you can donate to them online. You can see the Calendar in the Church during the Advent season, and you can open a new door each day throughout December here online.

This year it’s the artists’ turn to create the 24 pictures – see detail from Three Kings by Penelope Madden above (in alternate years, they are created by children). The pictures will be auctioned online in aid of the appeal and the collections from our Nine Lessons & Carols service and Children’s Crib Service will also go to the charities – but there will be no carol singing at Turnham Green tube station this year. You can also donate to our charities online.

Please join us at our Christmas Services at St Michael & All Angels. Read the poems and reflections in our Advent Carol Service booklet. And read more about Advent and Christmas at St Michael & All Angels.
