Advent - Telling Stories of Hope
As we come to the end of a difficult year, it's more important than ever
to affirm each other in our faith and share stories of hope and encouragement.
The Transforming Worship Circle (TWC) has gifted an Advent song to the Church, 
as TWC Advocate Rev Alex Sangster explains.
There are many Advent resources available to help you and your community
look ahead with hope to Christmas, the New Year and beyond.
Join the Transforming Worship Circle today.

IN PRAYER FOR:
  • All members of the Uniting Church as we begin our journey through Advent. In worship together, physically distanced or remote, and in our reflection and prayerful practice, may we be uplifted by stories of God's hope as we look forward.
  • All those in Australia, our region and around the world who are sick, impoverished, hungry and in greater need than many of us will ever experience. May we find in ourselves the generosity of spirit to be a blessing to the vulnerable.
  • A world free from gender-based violence
