On Sunday 30th November all our congregations from Dundas and Telopea are combining for a special service to mark the start of Advent. The service will be at 9.30am at the theatre at TARA Anglican School on Masons Drive in North Parramatta.
Advent is the four week period leading up to Christmas. It is a time when Christians prepare to celebrate the coming of Jesus into the world at the first Christmas. We will be thinking about how to make best use of the all the opportunities that we get to speak about Jesus through the Christmas events and services this year.
Advent is also a time when Christians look forward to the return of Jesus. We will also be thinking about how the promised return of Jesus should give urgency to our plans as a church. We will be launching the plans for our mission in 2015 and praying for God to help us play our part in his work of bringing people to new life and continual growth in Christ. If you want to know what is planned for next year please plan to be with us at TARA.
Finally, I want to encourage as many of us as possible to make this event a priority. It is always so encouraging when we come together as one church and celebrate all that God is doing in us and through us. I look forward to seeing you there.
