Advent and Christmas 2017

advent

Advent like Lent is a time for personal and corporate reflection on how we live our faith. In the case of Advent we are in a season of waiting.  Advent waiting is not however simply about the birth of Jesus.  Our Advent season waiting is also thinking ahead to God’s  future coming for judgement.  So the season is sombre, in purple and with fasting and repentance—a reminder that as God came to us once, so just as surely will come again.

There are four elements (or spiritual disciplines) that make a Holy  Advent. They are Prayer, Confession, Fasting and Charitable Giving. If you click on this link you can read more about how you might observe these disciplines during Advent 2017 – Advent Devotion Booklet 2017

On Saturday 16th December from 9am – 1pm there will be a quiet morning when we consider the gift of ‘God with Us’ during Advent.
