Christmas Tree Festival
St Mary's Wallingford asked local groups and businesses to get creative and create their own unique tree from a card cone we supplied. We hope you enjoy coming into the Church to view them and take part in some of our activities as part of the Festival. The Church will be open as much as possible during the week.
