Plymouth Methodist Central Hall Encourages Community Knitting for Christmas Angel Project

Plymouth Methodist Central Hall (PMCH) is igniting the festive spirit by inviting knitting enthusiasts to contribute to the “Christmas Angel Project.” 

The initiative, spearheaded by the Warm-hearted Knit & Natter group, aims to distribute knitted angels across the city, spreading joy, and celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.

Gareth Higgs, Superintendent Minister at Plymouth Methodist Central Hall, expressed enthusiasm for the project, saying, “We are really excited this year to offer a sign of blessing through our knitted angels. We want them to be a sign of hope and joy to those who see them or may receive them and we trust that it may bring a smile to someone’s face, as well as give them a reason to consider some of the elements of the Christmas story as the Bible tells it. It is wonderful already to see so many people getting on board, and we’d love the number of people we could encourage to multiply further.”

The driving force behind this heartwarming endeavor is PMCH’s Warm-hearted Knit & Natter group, which convenes every Wednesday. Already, the group has crafted 50 angels to kickstart the project.

Gill Rolfe from Knit and Natter explained, “We were inspired by a Christmas Angels knitting project that started in 2015, where over 20,000 angels were knitted across the UK to celebrate the birth of Jesus, and share the joy and love of God Christmas. This year we are aiming to give out 1000 angels to the people of Plymouth.”

The goal is to have all the angels ready to take flight throughout the city by mid-December. The angels will be distributed in various locations across Plymouth, including the Foodbank Hub in Stonehouse, during the soup run, at women’s projects, and in the city center.

To ensure widespread participation, a downloadable pattern is available for those who wish to knit angels independently. The church warmly invites anyone with a passion for knitting to join in, and materials can be provided if necessary.

In an effort to make the project more visible, PMCH encourages people to share their sightings of the angels on social media, tagging PMCH on Facebook (@Plymouth Methodist Central Hall) or Instagram (@pmch.church).

In the spirit of Christmas and community, Plymouth Methodist Central Hall is extending an open invitation to everyone in Plymouth to contribute to this heartwarming project.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
