the season of Advent is a very busy time in the church calendar and
as ever our parish is no exception, as the year ends with The Feast of
Christ the King on Sunday 24th November and as Advent begins stretching over the
following four weeks and on to Christmas Day we have plenty of
activity going on to keep our whole community busy throughout,
offering something to suit everyone, young and old, whether they
prefer a lively social event or some quiet time to think and reflect.
the Parish our Advent theme this year is 'Let Your Gift Shine'. This
is a beautiful reminder that we have each been given the unique gifts
and talents to use and to shine light in the world, and it
directs our hearts and our minds to recognise that this is a time
when we should not only pray for but also to take action to help
those who may be living in challenging situations within our local
community and across our global family, working together to support
the initiatives put before us, using our gifts to follow our
Christian mission, to live out the teachings of the Gospels and to
help in whatever way we can to create a peaceful, loving and just
society for all.
Our chosen charity this year is Betel UK, all funds raised over the Advent period will be donated directly to support them, you can find out more about the outstanding that work they do here.
Please see our Advent page here for further information on our full programme as we move through the season.
