Advent is a time of preparation and anticipation as we eagerly look forward to celebrating the Light of God coming into the world through the birth of His son, Jesus. This week the first candle symbolising "hope" was lit on our Advent wreath.  The remaining candles representing "peace", "love" and "joy" will be lit over the next three Sundays with the final candle symbolising the birth of Christ to be lit on Christmas Day.  

Thank you to our creative team who made the wreath!
