Advent Calendar

Dear Parishioner,

The Church has created a new online Advent calendar for this Christmas. Each day, from 1st December, our online Advent calendar windows will reveal a short film from one of our Ministries team reflecting on a word which expresses the meaning and spirituality of Christmas. We hope you’ll find their messages reflective and uplifting.

If you sign-up now at http://churchofscotland.advent-calendar.net/, you’ll receive an email alert when each Advent window is open and ready to reveal a new short film.

You can also watch this video https://youtu.be/Hb9U5Lov4hc which anticipates our online Advent Calendar for 2016.

Please spread the word of our online Advent Calendar amongst your family and friends.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas,
