Our Advent Course is "Light in the Darkness", an opportunity to reflect on how we are called to be Lights for Christ.Each week is centred on a word which has been central to these Covid times:-DISTANCE - SAFE - TRUST - NORMALThe material can be accessed by clicking Advent Course Material- do use it at home if you prefer.
