Annual Christmas Bazaar

An annual tradition for more than 50 years!

Candy, baked goods, crafts, handmades, books, household goods, jewelry, Christmas decor, tools, art, and our famous cafe for hungry shoppers!

For the kids: face painting … moon bounce … a secret kids’ store … and time with Santa.

Also, a special raffle featuring fabulous prizes like …

  • Tickets to major theatrical events
  • Tickets to sporting events (tennis, soccer, etc.)
  • Gift baskets
  • Valuable gift cards and certificates
  • And much more

The choir will be caroling … and the cafe will be serving authentic English sausage rolls, hearty corn chowder, irresistible Scotch eggs, and many more homemade goodies.

We need your help!

Join our enthusiastic volunteers and help prepare and carry out the annual Saint Alban’s Christmas Bazaar.

The bazaar provides a welcoming atmosphere and allows our neighbors to see how Christ works in our parish community. The bazaar is also an excellent place to meet new friends and reconnect with neighbors and friends you haven’t seen in a while.

In addition, the bazaar provides our congregation with a wonderful opportunity to raise money, all of which goes to support our many community outreach activities.

We offer a variety of items for sale, including handmade arts and crafts, baked goods and candy, jewelry, toys, puzzles, games, gently used household goods and decorative items, books, Christmas decor, and a selection of low-cost gifts that children can choose to surprise their families. There’s also a prize raffle, cafe, face painting, and, weather permitting, a moon bounce. The bazaar is the place where the whole neighborhood can gather and celebrate!

How you can help:

Volunteer! Do you have one hour? One day? How about a week? We are calling all volunteers to help decorate the parish hall, set up and take down the tables and chairs, move sale items in and out, work in the cafe or in one of the stalls. Much of the work takes place starting the Sunday before the bazaar and continues in the evenings during the bazaar week.

Donate your gently used items! Bring your items to the parish hall closet in marked boxes and sturdy bags on or before November 9.

Bake/cook before the bazaar! Donate homemade candy and/or baked goods, chili, corn chowder, or make sausage rolls for the bazaar cafe.

Spread the word! Encourage your friends, family and coworkers to attend. If you’re new to St Alban’s, or have never volunteered at the bazaar before, this is a great way to meet your fellow parishioners.
