Advent is a season of expectation and preparation, as the Church prepares to celebrate the coming (adventus) of Christ in his incarnation, and also looks ahead to his ﬁnal advent as judge at the end of time. The readings and liturgies help us to prepare to celebrate Christ’s birth, at Christmas.
This year at St John’s there will be the following special services & events in addition to our regular weekly worship
Sunday 27 November – Advent Sunday
6.00pm Advent Carols
A service of Choral Music & Readings for Advent

We welcome gifts of toys at any of our services today. The toys will be distributed among families where the children may not otherwise receive a gift this Christmas.
