Advent and Christmas
at St Andrew's
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 Carol Service
Sunday 27th November at 6pm.
A wonderful service of music and reflection as we move from darkness to light.
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.
