Andrew Saunders, another Lower Broadheath resident, will be selling wooden bottle openers and bowls which he crafts from local trees and woodlands.
There will also be fused glass, beaded jewellery, crocheted characters and fabric gifts, as well as children’s books and several tables run by locals and community groups.
Rachael Hodgetts, event co-ordinator from the Friends of Christ Church, said: “You don’t need to be a churchgoer to want to keep our beautiful village church going.
"The Parochial Church Council and the congregation have always covered the running costs and organise its upkeep, but we have had a great response to this event and expect the broader local community to come along and support us in raising money to support special projects and to help to keep our village church and the churchyard in fine fettle for the future.
“As well as wooden gifts and pre-loved woodwork tools, there will be some really great Easter gifts for all of the family.
"We have a colouring corner and visitors can enjoy a taster reflexology session, as well as an inflation-busting cuppa with cake for only £1."
