ADVENT 2020

This year, we encourage you to create a sacred space in your home around an Advent wreath to help you mark the season. We will provide you with a simple liturgy you can use to light the candles each week, and you can have your wreath lit beside you as you engage with virtual worship.

Our Advent sermon series will explore names given to Jesus from each of the four gospels. The music will reflect the joy of the season.
