Approaching Christmas

Advent is traditionally the 4 weeks running up to Christmas Day which give Christians time to get ready to welcome Jesus afresh into their homes and hearts.

What’s it all about?

In our present culture of commercialism there seems very little room , time or energy to consider God’s wonderful plan of salvation. How He broke into our world by sending Jesus who would save us from our sins and make a way for us back to God can easily be overlooked as we get caught up in present buying , cooking and attending numerous events and making space for the family to be together.


To help us step off the conveyer belt of Christmas busyness we have prepared an ‘Approaching Christmas’. Each Monday to Friday , starting Monday 29 November , you can listen to a short talk prepared by different members of the church family to refresh and challenge us as we approach Christmas


We hope you will take part and enjoy listening each weekday .


If you have a special recipe, family tradition, poem or story you would like to share on the webpage please send it to Rachael who will add this to the page for others to enjoy .


As you listen each day ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you and prepare your heart and you mind for the coming of Jesus this Christmastide .


We pray this webpage will bless you as you join in.
