All-Age Advent Service with Christingles

Advent Sunday 3rd December 0930

Our All-Age service on Sunday 3rd December with be a special service for Advent Sunday.  This marks the beginning of the Church’s year, and of our period of preparation for our celebration of the birth of Jesus at Christmas.

During the service, the children (and others who wish) will be invited to make a Christingle, a symbol of God’s creation and Jesus’ love for the world in bringing hope to all.  Once finished, we’ll bring the lighted Christingles in procession to the altar – and, of course, take them home afterwards to re-light them there.

Our Advent Boxes this year are for the charity Embrace the Middle East.  The decision to support this charity was made many months ago, and has proved particularly appropriate in the light of current events in the Holy Land.  Do please take a box and bring it back (full!) after Christmas.  You can find information about the charity here. We are not responsible for the content on other websites.

Music for the service is led by the church band; hymns include Advent candles tell their story, Colours of Day and Shine Jesus shine.
