St Giles have 2 new and exciting activities for you and your family to join in over the run up to Christmas”



1.  Messy Nativity Sheep Trail 

The idea is to go on a hunt around Newcastle Town Centre to find our lost knitted sheep.  You will need to download the document ‘St Giles Messy Nativity Trail‘ from our website which will give the locations of the shops where the sheep are hiding.  Then you just write down the name of the sheep you find and return the form to St Giles Church on Wednesday 20 December at 10.00 am.  A small reward will be given to each child who attempts this and returns their form.  Names can be entered in a prize draw.  The sheep will be in shops from 9 December.
