ADVENT RETREAT DAY:

If you went to our Lent retreat day, then you will remember how rewarding and enjoyable it was.

So we're pleased to announce our second retreat day this year as we prepare for the Advent Season.

Advent is a time of dual anticipation. As we wait for the birth of Christ celebrated at Christmas, we also wait for the second coming of the son of God, for Jesus' return. In the midst of preparing ourselves for Christmas, as we purchase gifts and fill our homes with festive decorations, it is easy to forget that the living God also asks us to prepare the way for Christ's return. This is a great promise, but also a great challenge.

How might we prepare for Jesus' return?
How would we want Christ to find us?
How might we build the Kingdom of God here on earth today as a sign and a prophecy of the Kingdom to come?

Join with us as we explore the profound mystery of Advent through presentation, discussion, prayer and reflection.
The day will be led by Donna Worthington
Saturday 23rd November 2019
9.30am — 3.30pm
Bring your own lunch, soup and roll will be provided.

There is no charge for the day, if you wish to make a donation, then might we suggest £10 per person.

Please complete the on-line registration here
or contact Rev Andrew Bradley to let us know that you're intending to join us.
