St James Church, Mangotsfield will be opening its doors 10am – 4pm on Saturday 14th October and 12-4pm Sunday 15th October to allow local communities to see knitted Bible Stories in a family friendly way.  There will also be refreshments available and a children’s corner.   This is part of the Bible Yarns project, an idea that has come from Mary Webb who attends St. Anne’s Church in Syston.  Mary has been busy co-ordinating knitters from 4 churches and beyond who have produced hundreds of knitted figures that will be on display in various scenes depicting Bible Stories.

At St. James Church you will be able to see the story of Jesus’ Birth and can then move on to St. Barnabas Church in Warmley to see the Creation, great Flood and some of the parables and miracles.  St. Anne’s Church in Syston will have displays from some of the parables and miracles and at St. Mary’s Church in Bitton you will be able to view stories relating to the crucifixion and resurrection, the end of the story which is also the great beginning.

Bible Yarns will move to the Nave Aisles at Bristol Cathedral for the entire month of August 2018 when you will be able to see all the scenes again in one place.
