Advent

Last Sunday, 2nd December, marked the first Sunday of Advent, the beginning of the church’s year and a time to start looking forward to the birth of Christ.  Following our Advent Service at which the first candle in our Advent wreath was lit and singing such wonderful Advent hymns as ‘Lo! he comes with clouds descending’ and ‘O come, O come, Emmanuel!’ we sat down to share a lovely lunch in a most festive setting.  Thank you to all who helped prepare and serve the meal and cleared away afterwards.
