Horsley’s Reverse Advent 2017 The Wheelhouse

As we start the countdown to Christmas and start counting up gifts for our family and friends – here’s an invitation to accept a small challenge to do something for people for whom Advent holds little hope or expectation.

From the 1st December 2017, you are invited to keep a box where each day some items can be put aside that would be suitable for use by a local foodbank organisation.  Boxes could be shared by families, neighbours and friends or by local schools, workplaces and shops.

Donations will be collected at The Wheelhouse, East Lane on Saturday 16th December 2017 from 9am – 12noon.

Boxes will be distributed on Monday 18th December 2017 to North Guildford Foodbank, The Salvation Army and Cobham Area Foodbank.

For more information, or to let us know you’re collecting: email

This project is led by a joint team of local churches – St Saviour’s in Guildford, St Mary’s West Horsley, St Martin’s East Horsley, All Saints Ockham and Horsley Methodist Church.

You are invited to gather for carol singing at Horsley Train Station on Tuesday 19th December 2017 from 5.30-7.30pm with mulled wine and hot chocolate being served.
