Shining Branches – Christmas tree Festival

st-alhelms-church1-2St Aldhelm’s Church welcomes you to this years’ Shining Branches Christmas Tree Festival.  Our theme this year is  “Work, Rest & Pray” .  Over 60 ‘real’ trees are on display each decorated by members of the parish or by companies, groups and schools throughout the Poole/Branksome area.  There really is no better way to get into the spirit of Christmas.


The festival opens on December 9th with an opening service and continues until the 24th December

Open everyday from 10:00 and closes at 19:00.

Throughout the lead up to Christmas Day the church will be thriving with lots of events as well as being open every day so you can visit the trees.

So come along, enjoy the warm glow of the trees, have some time off from the busy world outside, enjoy a tea or coffee and a mince pie.

Entry to the festival is free and opening times and lists of concerts taking place can be found here.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Christmas Tree Festival here at St. Aldhelm’s with the hope that it brings a little Christmas cheer.
