Advent – ‘The Spread’
In Advent we look forward to that magnificent moment where the invisible God was revealed to us – as one of us. God became someone we could play with, someone we could eat with, cry with, laugh with and chat long into the night with.
In celebration of this and the life that our God calls us into, we will recall over Advent some of the good things God has laid out for his family to feast upon. Things that we can drink in, things that sustain us, things to savour and to share around.
Each week we will have a special moment in the service where we reflectively create a decoration for our Christmas Tree.
For those who like to read ahead, here are some of the key readings:
