Then send your donation by bank transfer (St Mary's Church Linton PCC, 20-17-19, 90389277) putting a reference of 'tree' and your name. The final date to enter will be the 31st December.
You can then vote for the best tree between the 2nd-10th January. Make a donation as above and send an email to the address above to let us know. We will then send you a voting form.
There will be a small prize for the trees with the most votes.
Looking for something to keep you occupied in the dark evenings? Why not purchase our paper quiz? Copies are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visit Boswells Bakery and Sweet Talk News for a copy costing £2. Last date for entries is at midnight on Sunday 10th January.
Calling all children who enjoy arts and crafts! Enter our competition to draw, paint or collage a design on the theme of 'Christmas Carols'. Make it on an A4 piece of paper with your child's name and age, the name of the carol and a contact number on the back. Post your entries through the church letterbox by the 10th January. Judging will be in three age groups with a prize for each and entries will be displayed in the church after the closing date.

About Events at St Mary's
We have a thriving Events Committee which organises events with the aim of having fun together and blessing those in our local community.
The Events Committee is a sub committee of the PCC whose remit is to support the social life of the church and provide fund raising events. We have a very active committee of people who really enjoy each other’s company and arranging events as diverse as: curry and pudding evenings, day trips and a murder mystery evening.
A large part of our function is to support the service pattern of our church by arranging bring and share meals and refreshments after key services such as the Christmas carol service.
This year, 2019, the second year of the Linton Scarecrow Festival, reaching out and involving the whole village in a weekend of events much enjoyed by all and raising vital funds for the church. In 2020 we are going to be holding a Christmas tree festival, which will be similarly community minded and will add a little sparkle to our church and the wider village.
We are always happy to welcome those who would like to help at events.
Here are our upcoming events.
Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, keep an eye on this page where we will post updates on whether future events are taking place, as the length of the pandemic is unclear.
You can take a look at the full Church Calendar for more information on all that's going on.
