Christmas is fast approaching and there seems so much to do – we can all be very busy being busy. In a couple of weeks we will be gathering together to give thanks for the baby Jesus, and to celebrate his birth. We’ll sing our favourite carols and come to his crib in wonder and excitement. Advent is also a time of waiting and anticipation for Jesus’s return – because he will come again when we are not expecting it. In our busyness and bustle it’s important we don’t miss seeing Jesus! In preparing for Christmas, we will be putting our decorations up, sending cards, buying presents and preparing delicious food. But this Advent, why not spend time thinking about how we can prepare for when Jesus comes back. What will you do as you wait? How will you prepare?

Lead Minister for Dry Drayton, Hardwick and Caldecote with Childerly
Come and help, if you are able to, to move the large pile of wood chippings in the Cabin’s driveway on Saturday morning at 9am. Bring a wheelbarrow and a shovel!
Communion update: We re-introduced the common cup on Sunday 27 November. You are most welcome to take communion in both kinds if you would like to. If you would prefer to take only in one kind, that is, just the wafer, please be assured that this is a full communion, and is absolutely fine.
