Sunday 28th November 2021 marks the start of Advent. Advent it a time where we think about Jesus Christ’s first coming into the world on 25th December, and his second coming at the end of time; and is a time for us to prepare spiritually for the feast of Christmas. It is also the start of the church’s year.
