Find out how the churches of Farnham are spreading a little Christmas joy.

The churches of Farnham invite everyone in the town to spread a little joy this Christmas by making stars to display in their windows during advent.

For many people, Christmas will look a little different this year. It will be hard for friends and families to meet up, and some of us may even find ourselves in isolation or quarantine during a season which usually brings people together. This is why the churches of Farnham wanted to try and spread a little joy throughout the town, and remind people they are not alone.

Throughout December, join with the churches to brighten every street by making a star to display in your window. It can be as big or small as you like, and you can use anything you have handy: paints, crayons, lights, glitter… the limit is your imagination!

The churches have chosen the symbol of a star because for them as Christians it reminds them of the star that the wise men followed to find the baby Jesus, who came to bring joy to the world. But it’s also a symbol that holds meaning for people of other faiths and none. Stars can represent hopes, dreams, wishes… all things we all need more than ever this year. The churches hope looking at these stars will bring light and hope to all at the end of a dark year.

People can take a picture of their stars and put them on Twitter with the Hashtag #Farnham Shines, or on Facebook at
