The new church year begins with the 1st Sunday of Advent. We begin our period of waiting to celebrate the birth of our Saviour at Christmas, but we also remind ourselves that he will come again at a time we do not expect. The question we need to ask oursevles is, will I be ready when He comes?
You can read the scripture readings for this Sunday here.
Our Advent Carol service is this Sunday, the first Sunday of Advent 28th November at 6pm. We will be joined by a choir of singers to help lead us into the mystery of Advent through the beauty of music. Followed by drinks.
