The art work from the St Michael & All Angels Church Advent calendar goes on sale on Friday, 24 December.  You have until 12 noon on Sunday 9 January to make your bid if you would like to buy one.

Every year the church has a physical Advent calendar on display, with the days of the month revealing work by local artists one year and children the next. This year it’s the grown ups’ turn.

The Chiswick Calendar has sponsored tomorrow’s picture (22 December). The money raised by the Advent Calendar & Christmas Appeal goes to three charities: The Upper Room, feeding the community in need in West London; Water Harvest, helping bring safer and sustainable water to people in rural India; and West London Welcome, helping refugees and migrants in West London.

You can see the advent calendar pictures as they are revealed each day online here:

The artists are donating at least a third of the sale price to the church’s Christmas Charity Appeal. Bids must be made online via a computer or mobile device on the Auction site:
