Travelling in the dead of night with nowhere to stay. Mary fears for her baby…our hope for the world.

Thursday 18th December – ‘Christmas bonus’
57 Royal Hill, SE10 8RZ

We will use video (visible for a couple of hours each evening) and still material (visible all day) drawn from the Bible, the St Nicholas myth and from contemporary sources to contrast the rewards and expectations of receiving at Christmas in northern Europe with those in poverty elsewhere. It will underline the contrasting impacts of the credit crunch on both communities. Official opening reception 7.00 pm

Friday 19th December – ‘I saw three ships’
4 Feathers Place, SE10 9NE

We wish to use our space to celebrate the individuals who dedicate
their lives to making the lives of others better. Our window will be
created by the family – 2 grown ups with limited creative skills and a
very excited 7 year old!

Monday 22nd December – ‘The darkness has not overcome it’
30a Crooms Hill, SE10 8ER

Designed to be seen at night, this window represents the approach of Hope through fear and shadow.
