For four Thursdays in Advent (28th November to 19th December) we will be running an evening course that is open to everyone, with newcomers especially welcome at St Matthew’s Church, Harwell.
We will be looking at ‘Humbug and Happiness’. Using suggested clips from the classic ‘A Christmas Carol’ film alongside Bible-based reflections, prayers and conversation points, Humbug and Happiness considers past, present and future through the expected Messiah, the Jesus of the first Christmas, and his promises for the future, as well as themes of forgiveness, living in the now, and trusting God.
Advent Central will be held at St Matthew's Church
on Thursday evenings, 7.30 for 7.45pm
We will start with tea and coffee, a short time of worship, and then a video to introduce the story that will then be discussed in small groups (along with further refreshments!). The groups will then come back together to share some of their thoughts with those in other groups, and we will finish at 9.30pm.
This is a really good opportunity to spend a season in a sociable setting exploring the Christian faith together and encouraging one another. Contact Vicky in the Church Office for more information.
