The Season of Advent


The season of Advent begins on Sunday 2nd December.  It was once a season of fasting, the pre-Christmas equivalent to Lent.  It still is, within the Church, a time of reflection, as we prepare for one of the great Christian festivals – Christmas, or the Feast of the Incarnation (literally, God made flesh).  These days it is difficult not to be rushed along by commercial pressure into beginning to celebrate Christmas so early, that by 24th December we are suffering from Christmas fatigue!

We have managed to maintain a Communion Service on each of the four Sundays of Advent, so come along, and as the candles are lit on the Advent Ring, journey with the prophets, Mary, John the Baptist and all the people of God, and be reminded of the excitement of expecting God with us – Immanuel.




































































‘Pause for Thought’




When and where do you find time and space to reflect on what is going on in your life, give thanks for the good things, maybe offer a prayer for someone?


From Wednesday 30th January you will be able to do just that at Ingoldsby Church!


10.45 - A short thought for the day, a time of reflection, with an opportunity to light a candle.


11.00 - Tea, coffee and a chance to chat.


Every other Wednesday (alternating with Tuesday Coffee Mornings in the Village Hall).


Everyone – of all faiths and none – welcome
