Handmade Angels appear across the Parish of Jarrow and Simonside

Over 1,000 colourful angels have been hand-knitted and delivered across the Parish of Jarrow and Simonside, made by the Knit and Craft Group at St Peter’s Church, York Avenue.

Members of the group usually meet every Tuesday afternoon at 2pm, but those unable to make in-person meetings were encouraged to knit from home to support the project.

All 1,000 angels were blessed before going out into the community, being carefully placed in easy-to-find locations to be taken to their new homes.

More images of the angels are available below:

A seasonal display of angels is also visible outside St Peter’s throughout the Christmas season:
