We are now in the season of Advent – a time of spiritual preparation as we begin to look ahead to Christmas. It is a time for penitence, humility and reflection but also one of joyful expectation where we await the birth of Jesus.
Advent gives us the opportunity to spend time in prayer and often we may like to do some spiritual reading. Just a reminder we have a lending library at The Church Centre in Hartley for your use. There are still spaces on our Advent groups as well – please see ‘parish notes’ for more details.
For more information of the ‘Sundays in Advent’ please click on this link. Do also have a look at our ‘Services’ link to see the different amounts of services happening during this period.
As you think of gifts for Christmas, can I encourage those who have not yet done so, to buy a Banni Gift for a friend or relative. A different gift for this year, maybe bricks, a window, a door or materials for the roof. All to build a new classroom for the Banni Basic School in the Gambia. See below for further details.
Finally, the latest newsletter is now out, if you click on the banner below, you can download a pdf version.
I look forward to seeing you at many of them in this build up to Christmas. And please read our ‘parish notes’ link to see what else is happening in the parish at this time. I hope and pray this will be a holy and reflective time for you as we prepare for what is at the centre of Christmas.
