Ansley Church 15th Christmas Tree Festival

01 Dec 20

We have taken a selection of photographs of past trees and views of the church and put them together for your enjoyment

see below 

We will however have two trees in the church, our usual Prayer tree and a Remembrance tree. While it will not be possible for you to come in person to put the star or prayer on the respective trees we will be more than happy to do this for you. Please email your request to admin@ansleychurch.org or contact one of the church wardens directly.

In normal times we have a concert in church during this event, and while this is not possible this year, Jess & Richard Arrowsmith are going to stage a Zoom Concert on Friday 18th December from 7.30 – 8.30 p.m. instead.

Jess & Richard have very kindly offered to divide any donations they receive between the church and a foodbank local to their home in Sheffield. 

All proceeds received from the 5th to 20th December for the Christmas Tree Festival will be divided equally between the Mary Ann Evans Hospice Nuneaton and church funds.

We hope and pray we will all be able to welcome you to our church in person for our festivals next year. Both the Flower Festival commencing on 27th August 2021 and the Christmas Tree Festival from Saturday 4th December 2021. 

Wishing you a good New Year filled with much blessing and peace.

 Rev. John Langanlds 

It is with great pleasure that I would like to welcome you to St Laurence.  Frances, my wife, and I have received a very warm welcome ourselves, so you will not be disappointed when you visit St Laurence.  I am also the Curate of the other churches in Ansley and Arley – St John’s, St Michael’s and St Wilfrid’s.

Being in a rural and farming area in the north part of Coventry Diocese is like coming home for us.  A number of years ago I pastored a church in rural Norfolk which was mainly surrounded by arable farms with some pigs and chickens.  The strong sense of community life was something very special.  This should be particularly valued in these days when many folk live such individual, separate and often lonely lives. 

We have just had hot off the press a visiting card which I hope reflects what our church stands for: ‘You will not walk alone.  Together we are with you on life’s journey’.  Over these next weeks, months and years, I hope we can get to know you better and that you will find Frances and myself not just ‘churchy’ people but friends as well, who enjoy life and plenty of laughter!
