Our Christmas Fair takes place on Thursday 12th October in the elegant surroundings of Hylands House, Chelmsford from 10.00 am – 3.00 pm.

Entrance £5 includes coffee and biscuits. Light lunches and wine will be available.

Dave Monk of BBC Essex will open the Fair at 10.00 am.

10% of all sales goes towards repairing and improving Christian churches and chapels in Essex and East London in order to preserve them for future generations.

Our unique Christmas Card for 2017 will go on sale at the Fair.

The card will also be available by post using the Order Form below.

The cover image is The Adoration of the Shepherds.

This special image was  painted on the wall of the Church of St Nicholas, Little Braxted, by the Rector, the Revd Ernest Geldart, in 1885.

It is reproduced on our card by kind permission of the current priest-in-charge of St Nicholas’s.
