Get Ready ….

Tomorrow is the start of Advent , a time which about preparing ourselves for God, getting ready not just for Christmas and celebration of the birth of Jesus, but getting ready to meet with him each and every day ….

At The Cross at Yew Lane as well as our regular Sunday worship times during Advent, we’ve got a series of themed Advent reflections led once again by Rev Judith Jessop.

Elsewhere on the estate PXI and local Methodists are celebrating Advent in a various ways, from the Street Art project with Ric Stottto the “Big Christmas Sing” at Mount Tabor on the 8th December (6-8pm) where there’ll be a chance to sing all your favourite Christmas carols and songs and raise money for Christian Aid and Chaucer schools Ubunye project.

Nearer Christmas PXI (Space to Grow) will be organising cakes and Carols on the allotments at Parson Cross Park and LEAF on Herries Road.

Starting it all off tomorrow is the Advent Youth event at Tabor “Get Ready …. Christmas is coming” with live band, art activities, free food and a chance to bring your instruments and play with the band.

Hopefully there’s something for everyone there and so we hope to see you and together share in this special Advent time …….

Oh yes ….. if you’re up early tomorrow tune into BBC Radio Sheffield at around 7.20am and listen to PXIs Nick Waterfield as he discusses Advent with Sarah Major.

Love yourself …..

Standard

Eight people attended the Healing and Wholeness- Quiet Afternoon this week, in particular the session explored the theme of “Loving yourself and others”.

The session took at look at Jesus’s Great Commandment:  “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind … and your neighbour as yourself.”  The last bit of that commandment proved  interesting – “your neighbour as yourself”.

How do we love ourselves?

Do we love ourselves?

We’ll be continuing with the Healing & Wholeness theme at the Quiet Day on January 14th and it will be reflected in the Service of Prayer for Healing on Nov 16th, do feel free to join us.
