Advent is coming!

Next week Advent begins and so the church gets even busier than normal, with extra services, concerts and schools groups coming in! There is lots going on over the next few weeks so make sure that you get things in your diary so as to not miss out. Next Monday and Thursday we begin our Advent course which will have a meditative feel, with music, reflective reading of scripture and quiet. The perfect way to spend an hour amidst the busyness of Christmas prep! Come along Monday evening 7pm or Thursday morning 9:45am – to the de vitre room (upstairs in the Cornerstone), each session is stand alone and no need to book, so just come along whenever you can.

All the details of our Christmas services are now online here, plus we have a greeting card which we have printed for folks in the parish, which includes details of all our services – we are encouraging everyone to please take a handful and distribute them along your road – they are available from the back of church – please take some and make a note of which road you will deliver to on the form which is with the cards.

Already things are looking Christmassy around the town and its hard not to be swept up in the Christmas madness, along with the Black Friday shopping madness too – but can I encourage you to pause, to reflect, to be still this Advent and to take the time to ponder the divine mystery and wonder of this time of year.

 

People of God: be glad!

Your God delights in you,

giving you joy for sadness

and turning the dark to light.

Be strong in hope therefore;

for your God comes to save.

Amen.
