Advent includes the four Sundays before Christmas. The word ‘Advent’ means ‘coming.’ During the Advent season we prepare for the coming birth of Christ, and for the renewal of our faith. We also reflect on the coming of God’s realm in all its fullness at the end of time. The colour blue has emerged in recent years as a symbol of hope. This is the colour you will see in our sanctuary throughout the season.
