Religious Festivals; dates and times

 

 

Advent wreath making 

 

It’s that time of year when the temperature is cold, the daylight is short, the night is long, the trees get decorated, presents get bought and received, and the church in the community becomes a lovely part of the greatest story ever told. ( and the priest/vicar/minister, hopes you enjoy it all)

All are welcome at our services, regardless of faith/belief. All that is required is respect for other people, and a willingness to participate – or sit quietly, in what we say and do. Everything you need for the service will be here, and a warm welcome awaits you too.

Advent study December 4th, 11th, 18th, 10;30-11;30am

The 28th of November 2021 is the beginning of the new church year (Yr C) and also the 1st week of the 4 weeks of Advent; the time that Christians reflect upon the darkness ending and the light returning to the world, in the form of the baby king Jesus Christ our LORD.

This year there will be a Saturday morning study group, it is very informal and a warm safe spiritual place ( st Mary’s chapel) to join. We shall be reflecting on the creation stories in Genesis and how we exist /dwell in this fast-changing world. What does the nativity story have to do with creation and climate change? come along and find out. 10:30-11;30 am
