Advent and Christmas 2022

During Advent we take time to prepare our hearts to welcome God, looking forward to the time when all things will be gathered up in God’s love.

At Christmas we celebrate that God came to us 2000 years ago not in grandeur and noise, but in a small village, where there was no room for a young couple to sleep. There God became a human being, being born as a vulnerable baby.

If you’d like to see some of the ways we’ve celebrated this season in the past, please see our Advent and Christmas Gallery.
