Advent: for some a time of joyful anticipation, for some a time to reflect on happy times now passed, for some a time to work for peace and justice for all.

You are warmly invited to come along to church on Sunday and share the journey… yes you who are there Sunday by Sunday, and you who haven’t been for a while… you who are glad and you who carry hurt and pain… you who are certain… you who are curious… you who have questions, doubts and fears…
Yes, you will be welcome at your local parish church…
