Advent Sunday

Sung Eucharist 2nd December: 1800

Sunday December 2nd is Advent Sunday. – the start of a new church year. [Specifically Year C in the church’s three year cycle of readings!] It also marks the month or so of preparation leading up to the great festival of Christmas and the birth of Christ.  You are invited to come this Sunday 2nd December at 1800 to a special Eucharist led by our Vicar the Revd Juliette Hulme. She writes

Please come to this special service of Holy Communion which I am very much looking forward to celebrating with you. We will light the first candle of our ring of Advent candles, and we will use special liturgy and prayers as we look forward with hope to the birth of our Lord. There are some wonderful Advent hymns to sing including ‘O come O come Emmanuel’ and ‘Lo he comes with clouds descending’.

During Advent there are no flowers and the colour of the altar frontal is purple.
