This Sunday we begin a new church year. The first of the seasons is ‘Advent’, derived from the Latin, ‘the coming’. We look forward to Christmas, and our celebrations of how the Holy One came among us at Bethlehem. But the Christ who came promises that he will come again, to complete all that he began. Advent is the time when we look far beyond the horizon of four weeks and into the glorious promises of ‘the kingdom of God’.
We will hear the gospel dimensions of Christian hope not only read from scripture but also sung in classic hymns of the Church … beginning this Sunday with Charles Wesley’s ‘Lo, Christ comes with clouds descending … God appears on earth to reign’.
We invite you to join us in Christian worship either in the sanctuary (following COVID protocols of safe distancing, mask wearing and refraining from singing) or by live-stream at https://youtu.be/TKOcmsnpNFI Sunday morning. Organ preludes will begin around 10:25 a.m. and the service will commence at 10:30 a.m. Previous services can be found on the St. Andrew’s Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/StAndrewsPresbyterianChurchKingston
