Outside the church there is little talk of ‘Advent’.  The only words associated with it are ‘calendars’ and ‘candles’.  Apart from that Advent holds little power over our imaginations and lives.  It didn’t used to be like this.  For centuries the season of Advent was a significant and eagerly anticipated season of reflection, preparation and prayer.  Advent is a gift to us and for the next month, as a church community, we are trying to reconnect with this tradition and bring it up to date.  On the 5th December we are holding a special Advent service in the evening from 7pm.  Join us for an interactive service of worship and reflection which will awaken all the senses and bring Christmas alive. Looking forward to seeing you over this season : )
