News from St Barnabas for Advent Sunday

Happy new year!

This Sunday marks the beginning of the Church’s new year, as we celebrate Advent Sunday.  Not only do we switch to the more subdued purple to mark the solemn season of personal preparation for the celebration of the Incarnation, but we also move to the Gospel account of S Matthew (Year A of the lectionary). 

With so much talk of ‘Black Friday sales’ and massive stockpiling of food and drink, the Church reminds us that the most important preparation for Christmas is in each of our hearts.  Please make the Sundays of Advent a priority in our run up to Christmas!
