Advent Services

What is your church doing for Advent? Are there any special reflective opportunities happening amidst the hustle and bustle? Let me know, and I will give them some publicity here. For example...

5pm on Advent Sunday, 27th November 2011

'O come, O come Emmanuel' - a service of readings, hymns, prayers and silence, reflecting on the Great 'O' Antiphons and expressing the hope and expectancy which marks the Advent season.

Southwark Diocese, which is just over the "border" from us, produces a regular Spirituality newsletter with interesting thoughts and details of what's going on in the Diocese. These events may be of interest to those in Rochester too, so you might like to bookmark the page.

Greetings cards for festivals of other religions.

Here's an idea from Margaret Dunn - thank you, Margaret.
Greetings cards for festivals of other religions.  These are welcomed by our friends and neighbours and some cards could be made available in churches for worshippers to take free.  There's Divali soon for Sikhs and Hindus. It needs only a picture of an aladdin's lamp or a candle, but there are many designs to download from Activity Village and elsewhere.  A gift of a candle is also welcome.  Margaret Dunn
There is a calendar to help you find the dates of the various faiths' festival here:
