LANGTREE TEAM MINISTRY
Notice Sheet for Sunday 29th November 2015
First of Advent (Purple)
It is Advent Sunday ! The season of waiting, and watching, a traditional fasting time (like Lent), a time of expectant hope, and prayerful reflection on God’s saving action in Jesus Christ. A very warm welcome to our Advent celebrations across the Langtree Team ministry area. May you find the peace and space in our worship to engage a little with the meaning of this sacred time, when the four last things (heaven, hell, death and judgement) come a little to the foreground as we journey through the candles of the Advent ring. May this new church year be one of resolute hope for us all.
Next Saturday (5th December) the members of Checkendon Church invite you to a coffee and mince pie morning at Checkendon Village Hall from 10.30am. It is a wonderful chance to meet up, catch up, and take half an hour away from whatever pressures you may be finding yourself under at the moment. Do drop in if you are passing.
Have you visited our churches’ Facebook page yet? www.facebook.com/langtreechurches is the address. Please “follow” and “like” and “share” our page, because this makes our profile grow! This notice sheet is being regularly posted there, along with all our service details, so it would be worth “following” the page to keep up with news from right across the Team. It means we can always be in touch, even if you are, for example, away on holiday or visiting family elsewhere.
All the staff and I join in wishing you a peaceful, and reflective Advent season, beyond what the shopping malls can offer. We are very grateful for your support, love and care.
Your Rector, and Area Dean Revd Kevin Davies
