The Great Jesse Tree Hunt 2017

/ by Lewis / Posted in Christchurch Share


If your child is between 3 – 11 years old, put Saturday December 2nd in the diary; we’re heading on a Jesse Tree Hunt!

What’s a Jesse Tree?

A Jesse Tree is a bare branch or small tree that gets gradually adorned with ornaments and items that picture the gospel story. Part Advent calendar, part visual aid, Jesse Trees have been used by the Church ever since medieval times to tell the good news at Christmas time.

Join us at Wentwood Forest on December 2nd at 8:45am to search for your Jesse Tree. After 45mins hunting, we’ll regather for BBQ’d bacon rolls and a short story about why Christmas is so amazing. We’ll also be giving out Jesse Tree devotionals for families to use in the run up to Christmas.
