Advent and Christmas Services
St George's Church
Advent II Sunday 8th December
We remember the Prophets who foretold the coming of Jesus and the coming of the kingdom. They asked for social justice, and reminded us of our short fallings....
Do we still listen to their words?
(This morning service will be followed by the parish Christmas Lunch)
Advent III Sunday 15th December
We remember John the Baptist. The last of the Prophets and preacher of the Kingdom coming in the person of Jesus....
Do we still believe in the coming of the Kingdom and do we work for it?
Advent IV Sunday 22nd December
We remember Mary the mother of Jesus. Mary who said "yes!" Do we still say "yes" when Jesus calls, no matter what we are asked to do?
(This Sunday, as with many families, we bring a decoration for our Christmas tree).
