The Priory Community has joyfully welcomed the beginning of Advent. At our Advent Sunday Eucharist the Revd Rachel Wood helped us to reflect on the importance of ‘enforced inactivity’ in Advent to help us to listen better to God. The text of the sermon may be found here. As darkness fell, the Priory Choir led us in a prayerfully atmospheric Advent Carol Service at which we looked forward to the return of Christ at the end of this present age, and prayed for grace to prepare thoroughly for the celebration of God coming to us as the Christ-child in Bethlehem.
