We have had an incredible Christmas period at Ashford Vineyard, seeing over 540 people at our Family Carols services; over 70 at Christmas Eve Chill; and over 70 guests at The Big Christmas Dinner. Ashford Churches Together Winter Night Shelter kicked off this December, and we were able to love, value and treat our guests this Christmas, seeing them at most (if not all) of our Christmas events- what a privilege! Winter Night Shelter does not stop here though. We’re so excited to continue to love and support these incredible people in the coming months.
Our gathering groups had amazing parties and social events- Bookclub Christmas Quiz saw around 50 people having a laugh and enjoying community in the best way. Toddles and Bumps to Babes had amazing Christmas Parties; welcoming families for great celebrations including a visit from our favourite bearded, red hat wearing, man of joy! We have so many stories to tell, and fun to celebrate. But we want to say a huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers who gave up their time throughout our AV Christmas season- your time and unseen, behind the scenes, efforts have definitely brought life to Ashford, and we cannot thank you enough.
