Advent and Christmas 2017

In advent 2017 we’re following a 4 week course, written by Revd Lucy Winkett.: “So What are you waiting for?”.  The season of Advent bends time itself. And for us, time drags or speeds by, depending on our circumstances and stage of life. Our attitude to time gives us clues about our attitude towards God.It’s a cliche to say that we live our lives often waiting for life to start, but that’s what many people experience, until they realise that they were living their lives all along. Whether you’re always in a hurry or have too much time on your hands, this course is for you, as we explore a spiritual life that encourages us to be active in the chronological world, and rooted in Kairos, God’s time.

The groups will meet on a Monday lunchtime at 12 noon (27th November, 4th Dec, 11th Dec and 18th Dec),

We will share lunch together first (soup and a roll) before beginning our discussions. All are very welcome to join us. (If you haven’t already, please let Deacon Judith know if you are attending.)
