Advent

The word Advent means coming or arrival. In our lives, we all constantly seem to be waiting for things. For the newest pair of Nike Air Force ones, for lunch, for a championship game, or an opening night. Whatever the situation may be it might be safe to say that this is a universal thing. That at one point or another in our lives our desires and longings lead us to wait.

The focus of the entire season is the celebration of the birth of Jesus the Christ in his First Advent, and the anticipation of the return of Christ the King in his Second Advent. Thus, Advent is far more than simply marking a 2,000 year old event in history. It is celebrating a truth about God, the revelation of God in Christ whereby all of creation might be reconciled to God.

Ideas for Advent:

Join us in the Chapel every morning at 8:10am

Get involved in the Mary’s Meals collection

Organise “Advent Angels” with your friendship groups

Read the Bible

Advent Action: Send a card to a friend or loved one who lost a family member during this year. Let them know you are praying from them and thinking of them this Christmas.

Prayer: Lord, help me welcome You once again and make room for You in my daily life, that You may make Your home in my heart.

Matthew Offord MP visited our school on World Environment Day to answer questions about litter, climate change and the melting ice caps. Student from all year groups lobbies him on both local and national issues.  Having studied Environmental issues as part of his degree his answers were excellent.  He is going to take two of our questions to parliament.  We look forward to his response.
