Sunday 1st December is Advent Sunday. We hope you've been looking forward to opening your Advent calendar (even if only for the chocolate inside!) or lighting your Advent candle.  Well, Advent has now begun and, as we begin this season, in which we anticipate the coming of Jesus at Christmas and prepare for His return in glory, please pray...

  • O Lord our God, make us watchful and keep us faithful as we await the coming of your Son our Lord; that, when he shall appear, he may not find us sleeping in sin but active in his service and joyful in his praise; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
  • Almighty God, as your kingdom dawns, turn us from the darkness of sin to the light of holiness, that we may be ready to meet you in our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

All materials will be provided but please feel free to bring some greenery, a favourite ornament or a Christmas trinket, to personalise your wreath and make it truly individual.
