It will soon be Advent!

Fr Peter writes: Advent is soon upon us, and for each Sunday I would like us to focus on an aspect of “The God Who Speaks”. The First Sunday of Advent we shall be looking at the Jesse Tree – a scriptural advent calendar – and we will use one to decorate our Church. The Second Sunday will be about Bibles – yours in particular – but more about that nearer the time….
