CHRISTMAS has come early to a church as 44 magnificent trees have gone on display decorated with an epiphany theme.

The festival is being held at St Peter and St Paul Church, in Osborn Road, Fareham, every day from 11am until 7pm, until Sunday.

Groups from the church and the Fareham community decorated the trees, which had been donated by companies across the town.

It is the first time the church has held the event and Father Roger Jackson is hoping that it will attract people into the church.

He said: ‘It is helping people to enjoy Christmas and what can be better than Christmas trees twinkling away?’

The festival is free to enter.
