Advent – December 2022
During Advent the Chaplaincy Team were involved in a range of activities, these include: publication in the staff newsletter, creating advent wreaths in both chapels, introducing advent remembrance trees to remember loved ones and providing carol singing across wards and departments to share Christmas joy.
Children and young people in the hospital were invited to participate in a Christmas drawing competition. Entries were displayed in the hospital Chapels and on Twitter, in the lead up to Christmas. The overall winning image was made into a Christmas card and shared with inpatients across the Trust in the days before Christmas, reminding them that the Chaplaincy Team were available throughout the festive period to support patients and visitors.
