St Michaels and All Angels in Leaden Roding aims to brighten the Christmas period with a Tree of Hope.
On Saturday (December 12), the church is open from 11am to 2pm and people are invited to visit and write a message on the card supplied, ready to hang on the tree.
These messages can be to a lost loved one, to someone you have missed seeing, a special wish or a message for a sick person, a poem or a drawing.
Donations are being accepted to support the church and Whizz-Kidz.
There will also be homemade jam, marmalade and chutney for sale.
