ADVENT CALENDAR

St_Peter_Lapal_Christingle_and_Carols-37

Online Advent Calendar

This Advent, we need you!

In Advent, we prepare for the coming of Jesus in the manger.

Now, more than ever, we need to hold onto the hope of Emmanuel - God with us.

What does that phrase mean to you?

In these times of social distance, we want to create an online Advent Calendar of people from across our community.

All you need to do is produce a short video of what 'God is with us' means to you. It might be a reflection, a poem or a piece of music.

These will then be released daily on our Facebook page throughout Advent.

If you're interested, get in touch with the Vicar, Rev. James Pacey at revjamespacey@gmail.com or send your videos using wetransfer.com

After making our Christingles and lighting them, we take our thanks and praise into our service of Holy Communion. 

If you don't want to come 'in person', the service will be live-streamed and 'Christingle packs' will be available to collect from the Vicarage for you to make at home.
