Sunday 29th November is the first Sunday of Advent and the first Sunday of a new church year. During Advent we focus on waiting and watching for the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day. There are a lot more resources for use at home this year as covid has made us a lot more creative. There is print at home advent wreath here Advent Candles and an online Advent Calendar here

The calendar has lots of different reflections in music, poetry and movement. Your vicar is in there somewhere!

We are still hoping to produce a St Mark’s podcast for Advent but until then here is a video with a familiar tune but with words by Revd Miranda Threlfall-Holmes and performed by Ruth and Rob Sutherland
