This is the last Sunday of Advent and another special day in the life of the church.

The church is sometimes called a pilgrim people. This description we hear often in the Eucharist and it’s Prayer. This pilgrim view of the People of God is so clearly understood in Advent. Not as a journey towards Christmas, but as a journey of faith in itself. Seeing within, the special glimpses, on the pathways of faith. One great gift already present is the Incarnation of Jesus Christ, celebrated again next week. God with us.

The Church has a special present for the Sunday Group and local children today with the outing to the Pantomime at Hoxton Hall. Please contact Loraine Miller or Nana Bannerman. (Whos Who)
