Jigsaw-building has been taken to a new level in Stoke next Guildford this Christmas where parishioners have been invited to be part of the bigger picture.
Over 1,800 jigsaw pieces have been sent to homes in the parish with an invitation to bring them back to church and help create a giant community jigsaw.
Curate the Revd Kate Wyles explains: "The puzzle pieces are made up from pictures taken around Stoke parish including Stoke Park, Disability Challengers, the fire station and the church itself. When put together the completed puzzle caries a special Christmas message of hope and peace.
"This is way of connecting our community and having fun together. But it also gives us an opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus’ birth. Many people today are puzzled by the reason for the season. We hope people will come to St John’s this Christmas and discover the He is the missing piece (peace) of the Christmas puzzle."
