‘Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.’ (Hebrews 13:2)
We’ve had a truly fantastic week here at St Michaels, celebrating Angels and their messages. Local schools, uniformed organisations, and community groups contributed a host of wonderful thought-provoking interpretations of Angels, which have been enjoyed by well over 500 visitors. We are so grateful to everyone: for visiting, for contributing your exhibits, for participating in the organisation of the event, for helping out within the church and café throughout the week, and most of all for making this Angel Festival a thoroughly special and shared community experience. We intend to present a more thorough commentary and display in due course but, in the meantime, please feel free to enjoy the slides below which reminisce on a sample of the superb exhibits and activities. We also present a sample of the warm messages left in the Angel Festival visitors book.
The week started with a rare showing in colour of “It’s a Wonderful Life” attended by 75 people. Throughout the week local school children have visited with their teachers and parents. Some participated in our Angel Trail in the village, and 10 lucky children won copies of Michael Morpurgo’s ‘On Angel Wings’.
St Michaels would like to thank all the local businesses for their support, for displaying posters, taking flyers and hiding Angels in their windows. Our thanks also to Sandwich Heaven for kindly donating “goody bags”.
Thanks to Bramhall businesses for being a part of the Angel Trail
