Advent Sunday

Sharon would like to invite you to look forward to Advent Sunday which is in two weeks time on 29th November and to listen in to our Soundcloud service a little differently.

Firstly to think about who can you share it with? Is there someone you could forward the email link to? Is there someone who would struggle to access it but to whom you could play it down the phone landline?

Secondly, whilst it could be listened to in the same amount of time you have set aside for our other audio services, which I hope have already given you much to think about and pray through, this time, I will invite you to pause the audio service a couple of times to give time to doing something before carrying on. If you have ever been on a retreat, you might recognise a similar pattern whereby you are offered some content but then invited to go away and reflect, sometimes with prompts to invite you to do something to aid and express your thoughts and prayers. I would like to invite you to use what you already have in your house and garden rather than think you need to go and purchase anything.

Thirdly, I will also invite you to find a way of sharing what you have explored. This might be by photographing what you have made, remembering that above anything this is about the process not the product. These photos can be shared with Jane on janealisonevans@gmail.com and they may be posted on our website and social media. You could also share it by putting it in the window of your home, or by contacting someone from our church family and telling them about your exploration and asking them about theirs.

ADVENT reflections - a time to share prayers and thoughts on Zoom. If you would like to join please send an email to sharon.goble@btinternet.com asking for the Zoom link and saying which time you would like to join.

Sundays at 7pm on 29 November, and 6, 13 and 20 December.

Wednesdays at 5pm on 2, 9, 16 and 23 December.

Sharon is new to offering ministry via Zoom so please be patient with her as she learns! Wednesdays will repeat the previous Sunday material.
