The children’s Christmas Party will be held on Saturday 2nd December from 2 pm – 4 pm. This will be preceded by our final rehearsal for the Nativity starting at 1 pm.

If your child is involved in the Nativity, please arrive promptly for our rehearsal at 1 pm, so the start of the party won’t be delayed. The Nativity will be on Sunday 3rd December at our 10 am service.

There is a form at the back of the church for you to put your child/children’s names on if they are coming to the party. If their names are not on this list by Sunday 26th November, Father Christmas will not have a gift for them. There is also a form for you to let me know what child-friendly finger food you can supply for our party. Any questions please contact Sandy whose details are on the back of the pew sheet.

Would you like to host an Advent Study in the church or in your home? Please speak to Canon Ian and let him know the date and time. At this stage, we will be having a study group on Mondays at 3 pm and on Tuesdays at 10.30 am. If you would like to attend one of these, please leave your name on the sheet at the back of the church.

The parish has 50 copies of the study “With Expectant Hearts” for our parishioners to purchase. The cost of the book is $8 each. These are now available at the back of the church.

The resource we are using invites us to explore more deeply what it means to allow God to come to birth with us. The spiritual nourishment God seeks to give us during this Advent time will come to birth in us through the entire year if we can open our hearts in response to it.

There is also a diocesan Advent Study Guide which has been produced. If you would like a copy of this document, please let the parish office know and it will be printed for you.

Prison Fellowship is currently finalising the list through communication with carers. We have been informed that the women’s prisons and some of the men’s prisons chose not to participate this year.
