Advent & Christmas

With hundreds of other Anglican Churches this year we invite you to #FollowTheStar.

“For many of us, Christmas brings up so many emotions, memories and expectations. We
have one nativity story, but it can seem like we all have very different Christmases.

“For you it might be a time of joy and togetherness. Or perhaps it’s all about planning and to-
do lists. Many others can find it a sad and lonely time – nagged by the feeling that your
Christmas is not like those ‘perfect’ ones we see in the media.

“But just like the unexpected assortment of people who were invited to meet the baby Jesus,
#FollowTheStar doesn’t ask you to be perfect. It says: come just as you are to take the life-
changing Christmas journey.”

Archbishops Justin Welby & John Sentamu
