Advent devotional

This advent season we are following the ‘Christmas story’ through the Bible book of Ruth using this advent devotional. If you would like to join us, it’s not too late to grab a copy of the book from our church bookstall – they are offered at the discounted price of £1.70.

Christmas Toy Appeal

Get involved!

Churches in Swindon are once again launching a Christmas toy appeal with the aim of bringing a little hope and happiness to local families* living in desperate need, so they can have presents to wake up to on Christmas morning.

We are asking individuals, groups and organisations for donations of new toys to suit ages 0 – 16. Or you can make a financial gift if you prefer. If you are able to support this fantastic initiative or would like to know more details including gift suggestions and drop of points etc go to: https://gatewaychurchswindon.org.uk/toy-appeal/

*All families will be nominated by social workers, churches and support organisations across Swindon.
