Advent

God of hope, lead us to hope by the power of your Spirit, as your Spirit moulds and shapes us. Lead us to hope with the trusting hand of a child, as we learn anew from children what it means to trust. Amen.

The Advent wreath is a symbol of growth and of life. The circle of the candle reminds us that God’s love for us has no beginning and no end. The candles remind us of Jesus - the light of the world and a guide for us to follow. There are four candles, each representing the four Sundays of Advent - a candle for HOPE, PEACE, LOVE and JOY
