We are celebrating the birth of Christ our lord
We begin Advent on the Last Sunday in November and hope to have a packed calendar. There is a service for everyone, whether you are looking for Holy Communion in the church or something on Zoom, at St Matthias' you will enjoy celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ and the joy of Christmas.
Sunday NOVEMBER 27th
Zoom service 9.30am
Advent Carol Service 10.30am
Advent is a season of expectation and preparation, as the Church prepares to celebrate the coming (adventus) of Christ in his incarnation, and also looks ahead to his final advent as judge at the end of time.
This year we will mark the beginning of Advent with an Advent Carol Service. This is a simple but rich service of lessons and Advent-themed hymns.
