Hopeful Advent with Bishop Helen-Ann

A series of reflections with Compline for Advent

‘Hopeful Advent’ – a series of reflections with Compline for Advent


Take a pause from your Christmas preparations to join Bishop Helen-Ann for a series of reflections with Compline this December, with the theme ‘Hopeful Advent’. 


Advent is a season of expectation and preparation, as the Church prepares to celebrate the coming of the light of Christ at Christmas.


When the Lord comes,

he will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness,

and will disclose the purposes of the heart.

Therefore in the light of Christ let us confess our sins.

cf 1 Corinthians 4.5


These evenings offer Complines as a time for quietness and reflection amidst the hustle and bustle of the season.
