The first week of Advent is themed around Hope. It’s a chance to remember the hope of God’s people as they waited for a Messiah and an opportunity to reflect on our hope that one day Jesus will come again.
What are you hopeful for in our world? If you could have just one hope for the future what would it be? God gives hope to everyone and as we enter the season of Advent we should remember that whenever things are difficult we can always hope in God.
This week we start Advent. One of the most special and important times in the year.
As you heard in the video, have a talk and reflect on what it is you’re hoping for this year, and if you can, try and think about your hops for others not just the hopes we have for ourselves!
**Tonight is also our Advent Liturgy, hosted by our 6th form students. It’s free, starts at 7:30pm and it’ll be a great way to prepare for the season to come!**
Lord, thank you giving us hope in you. Amen.
We finish with the Sign of the Cross.
If 2 minutes is long enough to learn about Advent then it’s long enough to start getting ready for Advent too! We want you to spend the next 2 minutes in silence, waiting, thinking and praying about the next 4 weeks.
What exciting things are happening?
Who will you see and spend time with?
What can you do to really get ready for Christmas?
Spend some time talking to God in the silence and thinking about what Advent really means.
