The final week of Advent starts on Sunday and here is the last Advent prayer:
God our redeemer,
who prepared the Blessed Virgin Mary
to be the mother of your Son:
grant that, as she looked for his coming as our saviour,
so we may be ready to greet him
when he comes again as our judge;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
On Sunday morning there is a special All-Age Christmas service at Wollaston starting at 11am, and then in the evening we have two Carol Services:
6pm at St. Mary’s, Bozeat with Top Brass
7pm at St. Mary’s, Wollaston with a home grown choir
Both services will have a Christmas message by Nigel Clent and both are followed with seasonal refreshments.
