An annual event is the "Advent Story" held in St Martin's Church and attended by pupils from local schools. These images from 2008. See the 2013 photos
We start with the whole group listening to the Christmas story............
including the journey to Bethlehem ...... ... and end with a "meal"
............. various aspects are explored round the church in small groups
We look at the gifts of the magi - and the gifts of the church including the chalice and platen, bread and wine, used in the communion (Thanksgiving)
Candles are lit with prayers
The seasons or the Church year are depicted with the different colours ........

...... and an opportunity to "dress up"

A shepherd explains his role in the Christmas story -- and how the Bishop is a shepherd to his flock
We explore images of Mary, the Mother of Jesus in the Lady Chapel
Isaiah shows the scriptures foretelling Jesus birth
