STEYNING’S ancient Norman church will be turned into a Christmas market on Saturday.
Father Neil Roberts, new vicar at St Andrew and St Cuthman Church, will launch the event by donning a chef’s apron and cooking bacon butties outside the porch.
Inside the church, there will be music, local crafts and something for all the family.
Wendy Francis said: “Come and find lots of gift ideas from an array of stalls including local art and craft, Christmas plants, festive cakes and puddings and bric-a-brac.
“There will be family events with Father Christmas, face painting and hand bells to try. There will be a warming mulled wine stall and our café will be for everybody.”
In the Chancel, there will be a Christmas tree decorating competition for groups, both for children and adults. Author Julia Donaldson and her husband Malcolm will be judging the most imaginative presentation.
Music will be provided by the young flautists and choirs from Steyning Primary School and Steyning Grammar School boarders.
Entry is free and the market runs from 9am to 1pm.
