Happy New Year

Today we start a new church year.  We start with four weeks for Advent which is a time of preparation for Christmas when we remember how Jesus was born in a stable and prepare for when he will come again.
As we light our Advent wreath we are remembering children from around the world and using prayers from Mission Together (which is the Church's Mission charity for children).  

Children received their own Advent calendar for an online version and other ideas  see the Advent Calendar. Link to calendar
