Angel on statueFor the past three years we have knitted angels to leave around Ulverston town centre. Last year we left 1500 angels in the town for people to find. They have a label tied to them which has a message from the church. We have received a good response on our facebook page.

This type of event happens all over the country and started in the North East. The aim is to share Gods love and to bless the community in public places with a Christmas message. The idea is that angels are knitted, a tag attached and then left for people to find.

This year we are knitting fewer angels and will hand them to people in the town before Christmas and hopefully have a conversation at the same time rather than yarnbombing a host of angels one night.
