This morning during our worship the children with help from a couple of parents built our advent ring from a variety of evergreens and the customary five candles. We traditionally use four red candles and one white candle to represent the People of God, the Prophets, John the Baptist, Mary and Christ in the centre. The candles also represent Hope, Peace, Joy, Love and Christ.
We enter this season of Advent with hope for God’s coming at Christmas, but also with hope for all people’s of this world.
Today – This morning’s service will be led by Rev P Dean and Alison Driscoll, the evening service by Rev P Luscombe.
Next Sunday – Morning service is will be led by Joy Brumwell and the evening service will be led by Rev P Dean.
Tues mornings – Morning prayers continue at 10am
Fri mornings – Coffee mornings here every Fri.
