The third Christmas Tree Festival at Alvechurch Baptist Church featured entries decorated by village groups on the theme of a well-known carol.

As well as the trees themselves, there were plenty of church services and festive activities including a family film afternoon, the chance to “Dine among the Trees” (above), and a Grand Festival Concert.

The festival raised more than £1,500 to share between two homeless charities: The Birmingham Choir with No Name and St Basil’s Centre Birmingham. Visitors also donated gifts for homeless people via a large Advent Calendar in the church foyer.
