Advent

Updated: Nov 29, 2018


Advent is a way of reminding us that we are pilgrims passing through; that the brokenness of this world isn’t how it’s always going to be; that the true King is indeed coming soon. "He shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Jesus, born a baby to a lowly household. Son of a Father outside of time. Miraculous.

This advent, as a church family, we'll be spending four weeks looking into some of the names written of Jesus by the prophet Isaiah. From Sunday 2nd to 23rd December, in these words we often read over and appreciate but don't look into. Each Sunday morning 0830 and 1030 we will look further into each of the four names captured in Isaiah 9:6 unpacking the meaning and practically how if affects our everyday living. Follow along with us by using these accompanying notes for personal or life group use, with print copies available at on Sundays or from the church office midweek. Spend some time alone reflecting on our expectancy of Christ's return by looking back at Christ's arrival. Spend time with others in church and throughout the week in lifegroups over this coming season rejoicing in hope and the good news. Johnny will unpack wonderful counsellor this Sunday, then mighty God, Billy will explore God as our everlasting father, and Johnny wrap up this mini-series, with prince of peace, on the 23rd!


May your anticipation and expectation increase over the next month. December will be busy. But it doesn’t have to be a blur! Here's to preparing room in our hearts this Advent for God with us.
