GALLERY: The Town Church Christmas Festival

A Christmas Tree Festival has helped to kindle the festive spirit at the Town Church in the lead-up to the big day.

The church has been adorned with not just one, but an exhibition of Christmas trees representing good causes across the Bailiwick.

The collection of trees includes one a 'Compassion Tree', an interactive tree created by the Guernsey Arts Commission, used by Health & Social Care and sponsored by cancer support charity MacMillan.

"The Compassion Tree has moved around various sites within HSC departments where people have been invited to leave comments about what compassion means to them," said Critical Care Nurse Suzanne Fallaize. 

"This sharing of emotions has helped us to understand compassion and what it means to others. It is important to learn about compassion because it helps us to understand how, as nurses and midwives, we can help make situations better for people and alleviate suffering.

"The Town Church Christmas tree festival allows us to showcase our wonderful Compassion Tree within the beautiful setting of the Town Church, alongside some of the other lovely Christmas trees representing other good causes in the Bailiwick."
