Advent Houses 2018

Open your door to your neighbours this Advent!

Every day leading up to Christmas Eve a different ‘Advent Door’ will be opened in someone’s home. Daytime, afternoon or evening, let’s share the spirit of hospitality in our community.

You are invited to offer to host an ‘Advent House’ at your home or to simply pop along to one of the families hosting on a particular day. You can do this unannounced and stay for a couple of minutes or for the whole duration. You can go to one or two, or as many as you like!

What do I do if I want to host?

If you would like to host then check the spaces below and simply email Ruth with the date you would like to host. Just include your name, road and the time you would like to offer. Someone will be in touch with a pack and details

Do I need to open my house?

No. You can put a table up in the front garden/open up the garage and offer hospitality outside. Of course you can open up your house if you wish.

What shall we offer?

It doesn't need to be very much; a cup of tea/coffee and a Christmas biscuit or glass and mulled wine and a mince pie. Whatever you would like to.

What time of day should my Advent House be?

You can host an Advent House at whatever time of day suits you: a morning coffee while the kids are in school, an after school kid friendly get together or an evening party aimed at adults! You choose the time (and therefore type) of Advent House you wish to hold....but everyone must be welcome!

How will people find the Advent Houses?

Each person who is hosting will be given a poster with their ‘Advent Number’ (the date!) to put up in their window throughout December and the their Advent House will be listed on the website. These numbers will also be part of a treasure hunt that children can take part in as they try and locate all the Advent Houses throughout December.
