WFPSC at St Barnabas Christmas Fayre, 30 November '14

This year's St Barnabas Christmas Fayre was a great community event , with various stalls selling crafts and other beautiful things, manly made by local people and sold in aid of different charities.

St Barnabas vicar Steven Saxby organized a video link with a Christan family in Bethlehem, which made this years Fayre extra special.

We all had a unique opportunity to sing Christmas Carols with  our Bethlehem friends and hear them sing Carols to us.

The mother of the family told us about their lives under the occupation and how happy they were to share with us in the Christmas celebrations.


 Streams of people went through the Church chatting, shopping and enjoying hot drinks and cakes.

WFPSC stall was well visited and our information leaflets and the Palestinian produce flew off our stall and we are glad that they will find place on many Waltham Forest Christmas tables.

Thanks to Steven and his wife for organising the Fayre and making us all so welcome.
