Advent Sunday

Sunday sees the beginning of a new church year. This time leading up to Christmas is a time when we remember that Jesus didn’t just come as the Babe of Bethlehem, but also is with us for eternity, including the here and now. It is a time to take a look at where we might do better in shinning the Christ Light in the world. A time to consider if the promises of the Messiah are being lived out in our lives and if not what we might do to change that before it is too late.

There is a lot of pain and hurt in our world currently, a lot of anxiety about the future and concerns about war and bitterness and entrenched behaviours and words. Christ’s Light can help us see these things through his lens, illuminating what it is we could do, should do; and also those things that we need to pass over to him as we can do nothing about them, apart from in how we respond.

One of our responses is to invite you to come and join us in spreading that Light of Christ, symbolically we light a candle for every week in Advent and then a final one to celebrate Jesus’ birth at Christmas. This is our Advent Wreath this year, come help us make it’s light a hopeful, peaceful, joyful, loving one.

Our service begins at 10am and there are refreshments afterwards to which you are also invited. We hope to see you there.
