Easter is a joyful season and this year we will be expressing that joy through colour! Everyone is invited to join in and to share joy with the community. Here are some ways you can participate:
Knit colourful angels - We will be giving out gift bags to key workers across the area (we’re hoping to make 500!) as a thank you for their hard work. We would love to include little colourful angels as gifts of joy so if you know how to work a pair of needles we would love to receive the fruits of your labour!
Knitting patterns are available here:

Make colourful flowers - The big angels from Christmas will be returning to church yards as Angels of Joy sporting a new colourful makeover. As a part of this we are planning to cover their wings and halos in colourful flowers. There are no rules on how to make them: crochet, French knitting, sewing, recycling…whatever you like! Any that don’t find a home on the angels will be hung in the trees, attached to fence posts and generally spread around to flood our churches with joy.
Some easy design ideas are available here:

Make Bunting - If flowers and angels sound too technical then there is still plenty of room for your creativity - one idea is to make bunting (any colour, style or material) but anything colourful and joyful you can think of will do; just play and have fun.
