Christmas Display at St. Alfege Church

Greenwich Church Street

Greenwich, SE10 9BJ

Advent Windows 2021 concludes at St. Alfege Church, the organisers of this annual event. 

The church’s own “window” is actually four images hung on the railing in front of the East Portico. The images are from the original sculpture created by Jonathan Bishop for the first ever Advent Window in 2007, which was an animation.  The animation was back projected onto the window of a house on St. Alfege Passage, overlooking the church. It was originally sculpted as an eight-month foetus and the moving image resembled a medical scan. It was the first advent window to open, on 1 December, and the sculpture was presented in church re-shaped into a baby for Christmas Day.
