Oxford Diocese Online Worship:
Advent is a season of expectation and preparation, as the Church prepares to celebrate the coming of Christ in his incarnation, and also looks ahead to his final advent as judge at the end of time. Today the first Advent candle is lit and we recognise the Advent of Christ, the light of the world.
As we prepare for Christmas in our hearts and in our lives, in the very particular context of COVID-19, prayer is likely to be our focus.
Presiding today is the Venerable Guy Elsmore, Archdeacon of Buckingham. The address is given by the Rt Revd Dr Alan Wilson, Bishop of Buckingham.
Advent Sunday: 29th November. Mark the First Sunday of Advent with this online Comfort and Joy service.
From St Martin in the Fields with Rev Sam Wells, the service observes the start of Advent with music, reflection and prayer.
