Throughout the 24 days in the lead-up to Christmas Day, residents will get a chance to see and hear from charities, clubs, and groups that operate in and around Bridgnorth. Each day from December 1st to December 24th a virtual window will open, via the Churches in Bridgnorth Facebook page, (you don’t have to be on Facebook to view the videos) and their YouTube channel, to reveal a message from a familiar Bridgnorth organisation or leader.
Some of the windows will reveal a bible message for a particular day, while others link to a video showcasing that organisation. “We know that Christmas will be very different for everyone. Although Covid 19 and lockdowns have made bringing the calendar together challenging, people have been brilliant I am so proud of what everyone has achieved, and in my eyes it’s better than perfect. We wanted to do something that would tell the traditional Christmas story of the birth of Jesus and bring some joy to everyone in our community and let them know they are thought of and not alone.” Explains Jane, the coordinator and brains behind the Bridgnorth virtual community Advent calendar.
