Advent Windows 2021

(No Window Today)

Art Made by St. Ursula’s School

68 Crooms Hill, Greenwich, SE10 8HG

Unfortunately, there will be no window for 15 December as the installer has been felled by Covid and needs to isolate. The Advent Window would have been done by the students of St. Ursula’s School and seen at the Presbytery of Our Lady Star of the Sea on 68 Crooms Hill. We hope the installer feels better soon, and we look forward to seeing St. Ursula’s contribution in 2022.

Art done by St. Alfege Children’s Church

St. Alfege Church Hall, Roan Street, Greenwich, SE10 9JT

This year, our St Alfege Children’s Church Advent Window has been inspired by kaleidoscopes to reflect the theme of “Brighter Visions!”   

The word “kaleidoscope” comes from the Ancient Greek word καλός (kalos) meaning “beautiful” or “beauty”, εἶδος (eidos), meaning “that which is seen: form and shape” and σκοπέω (skopeo) “to look to” or “to examine”.  

Our children at St Alfege Children’s Church have been thinking about brighter visions for hope, love and a sustainable environment; and would like to share some of our “Brighter Visions” with both our local community here in Greenwich, our wider community and with all of our visitors from around the world! 

We hope you are inspired by our “Brighter Visions!” and remember “You are the light of the world” [Matthew 5:14-16] and to “Walk in the light”. [Isaiah 2:5] 

Wishing Everyone a very Happy Christmas and a very Happy New Year full of “Brighter visions” 

The window is best viewed at night, but can be seen any time.

The window will be ready by 4 p.m.

Good Intentions

James Wolfe Primary School, Randall Place Campus

Randall Place, Greenwich, SE10 8RZ

This year we have taken the theme of ‘Brighter Visions’ and we have set an intention for the year to come.   

Before we set these intentions we reflected over the past year and remembered the positive moments and our many achievements, as both individuals and a community.  

We used these reflections to set our intentions for the year to come.  What do we want to achieve in 2022? What can we do to help others in our school and community?   

Our artwork reflects and holds these intentions.   

Our 2021 Advent Window hopes to bring Christmas joy to all.

The window will be ready by 1 p.m.
