Advent prayer series starting tomorrow

Nov
30

Welcome to our Advent prayer group. 

Advent is one of the most chaotic times of the year and it is very easy to forget what Christmas is all about, or rather, who it is about. So, from 1st-24th December we will be publishing a daily prayer idea/activity and a prayer starter. The idea is to try and help us to make space amongst the mayhem every day, by stopping and thinking about and being with God. How and when you pray is up to you - and remember, there is no right or wrong way to pray. 

Do check back on a daily basis, and join us as we prepare for the birth of Jesus.
