Advent Sunday - from the Vicar

Advent - a new Church Year full of challenges and opportunities - Time to Make a Difference

This new Church Year will bring its challenges and so we pause and wait, with Mary, for the coming of the Christ in the child of Bethlehem.

It is a time of year to pause and reflect upon those things which need to grow inside all of us. To ask ourselves what needs to grow in our own lives - family life - friendships - especially, perhaps, a sense of inner peace and quiet calm?

Just like Mary we need to make space in order to reflect quietly and just let God's spirit do with us what it will.

A Quiet Advent and Happy Christmas - after the waiting.
