Next Sunday at St Edward’s will begin as usual with a Prayer Book communion service at 8.00 am.
The 11.00 am service will be the main Eucharist of the day, marking Advent Sunday, the first day of the new Church Year. Malcolm will preach. The service will include a thanksgiving for Marco, the recently-born son of Karin and Hermes.
The 5.00 pm service (not a Eucharist this week) will be the Advent Carol Service, with lessons, poems, carols and prayers for Advent. The service will be followed by mulled wine and mince pies. This is always a popular service, moving and atmospheric.
On Monday at 7.30 pm we are hosting the Pantomime Carol Service for the Arts Threatre, led by Malcolm.
On Wednesday at 7.30 pm there will be the launch of Malcolm’s book of sonnets, Sounding the Seasons.
On Thursday at 12.30 pm, there will be prayers for reconciliation and healing, led by Matt Russell, with laying on of hands for those who wish to receive it.
On Friday there will be a Prayer Book Communion service at 10.30 am, led by Alan Cole. The meditation group will meet at 5.30 pm, led by Fraser.
