It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...
Advent is here. The time of year we begin the journey to Christmas. All over the world, Christians are preparing to celebrate the birth of baby, born in a manger.
A helpless babe; a lowly manger; a young mother, and her loving husband; the gentle noise of farm animals; a star in the sky; shepherds; wise men.
These are the symbols of Christmas. Every year people everywhere rejoice in them.
This year, we will journey toward Christmas with songs of rejoice and praise. We will discover the hope, the peace, the love, and the joy of the baby born in the manger through the praises of two old men, one young woman, and a mighty heavenly host.
Join us, and may you find your own song of praise to the Christ, born in Bethlehem!
- 30 November, 10am: Zechariah's Praise. 'Praise be to the Lord'.
- 7 December, 10am: Mary's Praise. 'Tell out my soul'.
- 14 December, 10am: The Angels' Praise. 'Glory to God in the highest'.
- 21 December, 10am: Simeon's Praise. 'Now dismiss your servant in peace.'
- 24 December, 7:30pm: Christmas Eve. Jesus is born to be praised.
