December – Advent and Christmas

30th December 2018

A candle was lit in our Advent Wreath for each of the 4 Sundays in Advent culminating in the lighting of the Christ candle on Christmas morning. During Advent in this time of preparation and waiting for Christ’s coming, some of us focused on personal prayer/reflection aided by a good selection of recommended books, while others joined in an Advent bible study following the Thursday morning Eucharist. We enjoyed fellowship with friends and family at our Christmas lunch on the 15th.

Our Carol service on the 23rd, celebrated the prophecy and coming of Christ in scripture and song. On Christmas morning we joyfully sang ‘Yea Lord we greet thee, born this happy morning!’
