The definition of Advent means the coming of a Notable Person. For Christians around the world it’s a time to prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ to earth.
We remember God’s generosity as he gives the world the most amazing gift of his only Son Jesus Christ who is born in a stable, lived on earth as a man, died on the cross and rose to life again for the sake of humankind.
Advent of course also forms the word Adventure – an unusual, exciting or daring experience. This year some of our Church members share their adventures about Jesus. Why not click on the videos and links below to see what they have to say about their experiences of how Jesus has changed their lives.
