The church of St Andrew’s Steyning will celebrate an event of Christmas Spirit with music, local crafts and something for all the family.

The day will be launched in the Church porch with the clergy and church wardens wearing chef’s aprons and cooking scrumptious bacon butties. Inside, find Christmas gift ideas from the many festive stalls including arts and local crafts, handmade gifts, cakes, Christmas plants, Ginger Bread House cakes, bric-a-brac and much much more. Father Christmas will welcome you and guide you to all the family activites.

There will be Face Painting and a fun Children’s Messy Church Play Corner. The aroma of coffee will lead you to the renowned St Andrew’s Cafe where home-made cakes, tea and coffee will be served plus warming hot punch. A special Steyning Bookshop stall will be selling books by the author Julia Donaldson, who will be there to sign all books purchased on the day. Later, Julia Donaldson will judge the children’s competition for the most imaginatively decorated Christmas Tree.

Do sit, relax and listen to the music of the young Steyning flautists and local school choirs soaring to the the Church rafters all day. Free Entry.
