Join us for this dramatic candlelit service to mark the beginning of Advent.
Advent is a time of expectation: the word itself means 'coming'. It recalls ancient Israel's hope for the advent of the Messiah, and also expresses the Christian hope for the fulfillment of God's Kingdom in the second coming of Christ. Procesions outside and inside churches form some of the earliest drama.
The processions in this service are a metaphor for a journey which we make together. The words and music at this powerful service seek to enable us to worship God, who calls us to do his will and make the world what he created it to be - full of his light and truth.
