WHY THE FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT IS IMPORTANT

  1. It serves as a new beginning

    Advent season marks the start of a new year for Christian churches. A new year is always an opportunity for growth, restoration, and renewal.

  2. It gives people hope

    One of the major celebrations of Advent is the birth and Second Coming of Christ. This is a hopeful time in the lives of Christians that paints a better future for the world.

  3. It’s an opportunity for self-reflection

    The Advent season is also a time for sobriety and personal reflection.    It gives Christians an opportunity to renew their faith and solidify their relationship with God.

Everyone Welcome
As a church, we are a group of people who meet together to worship Jesus Christ and share our lives with each other. We want to be here for you in the local community and for everyone to learn about God and His plan in their lives.  

We think of ourselves as a group of people with Jesus in our lives. Everyone is welcome, without exception. – there is always space for someone else and we’d love you to be with us. 

If you can’t get to Church you can always access a Sunday service on-line from the Church of England at
