1st Sunday of Advent
 
8:00 am BCP Holy Communion said
10:30 am Sung Holy Communion​
4:00pm Christingle Service
Xandie's 

Dear All
This Sunday is Advent Sunday (Advent means coming or arrival:- Jesus is coming!)
There is no Early Birds at 9.15, just Christingle at 4pm.
Please bring back your Candle money boxes (full of money!) and you will receive a Christingle, which will be lit in the darkened church, to remind us that Jesus, the Light of the world, is coming. If you haven't got a Christingle box yet, please pick one up at the back of the church.
After the service we will walk round to the hall with our Christingles, for party tea. Please bring a plate of food (that your children like) to share. We will be providing sausages and mince pies.
We will also be selling tickets for our Hamper Raffle, to be drawn after the Carol Service on 16th Dec at 4pm.  £1 a ticket, the children’s hampers are 10p a ticket!
 
The following Sunday 9th Dec. is Messy Christmas at 4:00pm in the church, decorating our Christmas tree and making cards and decorations. Hazel will tell the Christmas story and it will be followed by a bring and share tea.
 
On Friday 14th Dec. Bulrushes joins with the NCT for our Christmas party, which starts at 9.30 in the Hall, we shall go into church to listen to the Christmas story with Hazel and sing. Father Christmas will be coming when we go back into the hall. We will be providing snacks, but it would be lovely if you could bring a plate of food to share and if your child has special dietary needs, please make sure you bring food that meets their requirements. Thank you.
God bless you

“Third Hope Africa (www.thirdhope.org) is a marvellous charity working to support the rehabilitation of ex-child soldiers in Northern Uganda.  Charlotte Yeoman, an incredibly talented “new generation” singer and tutor, is a trustee of this charity. Its fifth annual concert is moving to St Mary’s in Beaconsfield, and will consist of some marvellous choral works performed by Charlotte and friends from the Royal Academy of Music – may be yourselves! The concert will start at 7pm on Saturday 8th December and if, hopefully, you can stay longer, will be followed by mulled wine and mince pies.  Entry is free and there will be a retiring collection in aid of Third Hope Africa.  More details from Chris Daubney (07747 840710).  Please do try and  make every effort to come – you will not be disappointed, and you will be supporting a very worthy cause!  Thank you.”
