Godly Play in Advent

Date Posted: Tuesday 13 November 2012

Advent is the start of the church year, and the time to get ready to enter into the mystery of Christmas.

During Advent, starting on Sunday 2nd December, then on the 9th, 16th and 23rd December, the Godly Play stories for Advent will be told in our Sunday school, helping children to get ready to enter the mystery of Christmas.

Each Sunday, the children will participate in the lighting of the Advent calendar at the start of the service.  As part of the story, they will learn what each candle represents and light their own candle (with adult supervision).

A creche is also provided every Sunday.

Children will go downstairs when the congregation sings the Kyrie Eleision.  They rejoin their parents for communion.
