for the Second Sunday of Advent

In church this Sunday we will have held two Christingle services. This online service follows more closely the service held at St John's Wotton.


We are grateful to Martha for doing most of today’s service. And also to some faithful friends from the past for contributing: to Pam Robson for her Advent Blessing, Margery Pound for the Old Testament reading. It’s always heart-warming to hear familiar voices from years past.
