A Journey Through Advent
Things are very different this year and we cannot celebrate the season of Advent as we have done in previous years but we can still embrace the hope, love, joy and peace that this time brings.
This page will be updated on a regular basis with ideas for prayers, reflections and activities. We would love you to join us as we journey though Advent and we hope that this pages helps you as you wait in joyful anticipation for the coming of our Saviour.
This video gives a short explanation about Advent and really helps us to focus on the purpose of the season.
This week, as we light the second candle on our wreath, we reflect on the everlasting love that Jesus gives. As we prepare for the arrival of Christ our Saviour we have shared this beautiful song which really emphasises this message. Across the school we have been thinking about how we can show love to the people in our own lives.
This week, as we light the third candle on our Advent wreath, we reflect on the joy that Jesus brings into our lives each and every single day. In our assemblies this week we are going to reflect upon how we can share this joy with the special people in our lives. Advent is a time of joyful preparation, this week we are going to prepare ourselves by sharing the joy of Jesus. Maybe you could take time this week to pause for prayer. This lovely resource from the Shrewsbury Youth Mission contains prayers and reflections that focus on the joy of Christ entering our world.
