What’s On

Advent Series with Rev’d Gavin Williams

Advent is fast approaching, a season of hope in which we consider how the coming of Christ, the light of the world, can illuminate the present darkness. Starting at 11am on Tuesday 21 November and then 28 November, 5 and 12 December, we will use Luke and Isaiah to examine the Annunciation, Visitation, Magnificat and Benedictus. We will aim to finish at noon. Refreshments follow for those able to stay on afterwards. Our meetings will be held in the upstairs parish room inside St Chad’s Church.

Next Daylight meeting: see here.
