Welcome to Advent
Sunday 12 November 2023
4.30 – 6.30pm at Ivanhoe Uniting Church, Seddon Street
Christmas is coming soon, and that means that the season of Advent is nearly upon us!
Advent is the time of year when we wait for the coming of the baby Jesus. There are stories of ‘getting ready’ for Jesus in the gospels: In Luke we have the story of the Angel appearing to Mary and telling her not to fear because her baby was from God and would bring joy and peace to the world. And in Matthew we hear of Joseph having a dream where an angel tells him not to fear, and to look after Mary and the baby. I wonder how it felt for Mary and Joseph to have these strange dreams?
We’ll have all of our usual fun activities, crafts and games, as well as a celebration time and a shared meal. If you have friends who you think would like to join us at Messy Church, please bring them along with you.
