Sunday 28th November is ADVENT SUNDAY, the start of the Church’s year. This ushers in a period of fasting, penitence and preparation for the coming of the King – Jesus – who, having once appeared on earth to complete a ministry of service, culminating in his death on the Cross, will one day return to claim his rightful place in all creation.

At this season, as at Lent, purple cloth adorns the sanctuary, the colour used to denote the expectation of royalty – though in this case much more than mere royalty: the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Let every heart prepare a place for him this Advent.

Let our churches inspire you!

The four parish churches and one chapel that comprise this benefice are all cultural icons of the communities they serve and are of considerable heritage importance.

Much more than that, however, except during the present emergency, they are also living centres of Christian worship, offering peace and solace to all who enter them, and the Good News of Jesus Christ – as relevant as ever to the needs of a turbulent world.

So please come and explore our website and find out more.
