Craft Fair

We plan to hold a Craft Fair this year on Saturday 13th November - inevitably this is dependent on no further changes to the current Covid-19 regulations.

Craft Fair Saturday, 13th November 2021

With free entry and over 40 stalls, Nailsea Methodist Church's annual Craft Fair is now regarded as one of the most popular events in the area. We have stalls selling a range of goods including paintings, jewellery, fabric & knitted goods, cards, home baking, gemstones, wood turning, Christmas gifts, embroidery, clocks, toys, quilting, button art, candles, soaps, second-hand books, and bric-a-brac.

Children’s Activities and Refreshments are served all day and we regularly have over 500 adult visitors and around 100 children, for whom we organise craft activities and games.

Charities

In 2019 we raised a magnificent sum of about £2,000 from table bookings, entrance fees and refreshments and we are indebted to the stallholders for attracting the visitors with a good range of crafts and skills. From the sum raised, we supported charities with which our church members have a close association. Some went towards the work of the Francisco Rojas School in Peru (a school set up to provide Christian support, education and food for over 250 pupils in a poor district of Arequipa where many children do not get to school at all). We also supported Phakamisa (based at the Methodist church in Durban, South Africa which supports the nurture and training of the local Zulu population). The remainder was sent to other mission activities supported by the church at home and overseas. We are planning to use the money raised at the Craft Fair this year for supporting some new and other similar mission and outreach activities of the Methodist Church
