Advent is the season of preparation for the celebration of Christmas.

Light lunches are available from 11.45, with the talks themselves starting at 12.45.

On Wednesday, 17th December our own minister Revd Christopher Humble will round up the series on the theme Any other business?
The Methodist church we know today grew out of the ministry of John and Charles Wesley in the eighteenth century: you’d be most welcome to come along and join us as we explore their relevance for the 21st century church.
