Advent: Breathing Space in the Busyness of Life

Make time this Advent to pause and spend time with God. As we wait for the coming of the Christ-child, we gather to worship and to learn more of the God who is always waiting for us.

Advent Course: Gloria in Excelsis Deo

Wednesdays at 7.30pm on in the Holt Room and on Zoom from 30th November.

Carols are foundational in our experience of Christmas. Our image of Jesus' birth, and our understanding of what it means for us now, are formed to a large part by the music and lyrics of what we sing.  In this course we will be delving deeply into four Carols, their theology and scriptural background, to help us look afresh not only at the songs themselves, but some of the great themes of Advent. 

To join via Zoom click below: the codes are also found on our e newsletter.

Advent Compline

Wednesdays at 9pm in the Chapel and on Zoom from 30th November.

A quiet, reflective close to the working day. Space to find God with us in the busyness of the run up to Christmas.
