Advent Sunday 27th November 2016

 

Advent, the season of the church’s year when we prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ, begins with the lighting of the first candle on the Advent Wreath.

Our lay-led service took as its theme the need for everyone to ‘stay awake’ and be ready to welcome Christ when he comes.

Following the service, almost fifty people enjoyed a fabulous three-course meal in St Disen’s Hall.
