We have two sets of Advent devotional resources this year.
Lee Gatiss is resuming his popular daily Bible and Prayer videos during Advent. In these short videos, Lee reads from the Bible and then leads us in prayer. These are an excellent way to pause for a couple of minutes during a busy day and focus on the Lord. These will be available on our YouTube channel and there will be links to them on our Twitter and Facebook pages every day.
How to be a Christian is a series of daily written devotionals, based on the Book of Homilies. Each day there will be a suggested Bible passage, followed by a devotional thought, a couple of questions to consider and a prayer. These devotionals will be available on Prayermate or you can sign up here to have them emailed directly to you every day. Topics include: how to forgive, how to please God, how to love, how to have hope, how to disagree and many more.
Both these Advent series will begin on Advent Sunday, November 29th.
There are pre-recorded sermons available for you to download here and use in your services in whatever way will be most useful to you here. Audio and video versions are available of a talk suitable for a carol service from Luke 2:8-15, and sermons based on the lectionary readings for the two Sundays after Christmas on Luke 2:15-21 and John 1:1-18.
A suggestion of a ‘new’ old Christmas hymn from Charles Wesley that you might like to consider this year.
