Advent – prayer and preparation

Throughout Advent, a small group of people are meeting by Zoom every morning to pray from 7.10-7.20am (feel free to leave your camera off!) Each day they will be praying specifically for the prayer topic shown on the Advent Prayer Calendar. If you would like to join us by Zoom, contact Jenny on her curate email. You can also download the prayer calendar to put up at home.

Jenny has also created an Advent Daily Prayer sheet available for download to use at home in your personal prayer time. This gives you a short form of prayers and readings for each day of the week, which are designed to be appropriate throughout Advent.

The Church of England has also produced an Advent resource for families to use to help them prepare for and celebrate Christmas, with activities and prayer points for each Sunday in Advent and the Christmas period through to Epiphany. You can download this here.

Finally, if you haven’t already done so, do read Jenny’s November blog, in which she reflects on the value of having a dedicated prayer space at home, and suggests other resources that might be helpful and inspirational. Advent, which is the start of the Church’s year, is the perfect time to start new spiritual practices.
