Advent and Christmas dates 2017
We are pleased to announce details of our Advent and Christmas dates…
Advent in the Parish
It is good to take time to prepare for Christmas in more than practical ways. All these events give a chance to step back from the busyness and prepare personally for Christmas. at both the churches.
Contemplative Eucharist for Advent at All Saints’ – 6th, 13th and 20th Dec, at 8.15pm with the evening finishing at 9pm. We gather during this busy time to make space in our lives for God. All are welcome.
Every week there are these opportunities for spiritual preparation for Christmas:
Morning Prayer Monday to Friday at All Saints is a quiet service of psalms and prayers to prepare for the day ahead (9.15-9.45, enter via the small north-east door).
Breathing Space for Advent, on Tuesday evenings will give a chance for still, mindfulness meditation (9.30 pm for a 9.45 start, finishing by 10.15 at St Mary’s).
Advent Wednesdays. The lunchtime communion at St Mary’s (12.30) will have an Advent reflection each week.
