If your Christmas preparations get going at the start of Advent, why not add a time of spiritual preparation to your diary for December? The season of Advent, a time to prepare for the coming of the Christ Child can sometimes get a bit lost as December unfolds into lovely (but busy) times of shopping, writing cards, cooking and seeing friends and family. This year we are offering a day as Advent begins when you can take a bit of time out of busy lives to spend some time with the Christmas story. We will tell the story together using images of the beautiful frescoes by Giotto in the Scrovengi Chapel in Padua and then there will be time for you to use as you wish, in prayer, reflection working with art and craft materials or talking with the leader. We’ll share a simple soup and bread lunch and the day will end with a short Eucharist. Everyone is welcome – but please do book a place for catering purposes by contacting Sheena. The day is free of charge. More here
