Advent 2021




Be on your guard stay awake because you never know when the time will come.” Mark 13:33




Eternal God, you will come when we do not expect you. Help us to welcome you now in one another, to reach out to our sisters and brothers in need of care and support. And in this way may we be found ready, when come again in glory. Amen.

Advent Bible Study: Please come and join the Parish Bible study group each week in Advent as we read, reflect on, and discuss each Sunday’s readings in the run-up to Christmas. We will be returning to face-to-face meetings throughout Advent, meeting each Thursday from the 25th of November at 8pm in the sacristy at St Teresa’s church building (use the side door). All are welcome and you can participate as much or as little as you want in the discussions, but we are a friendly group! For more details email Chaz Hickman (, or just turn up and enjoy the opportunity to share our understanding of the Bible and make a little more of this Advent.

Synod Prayer 

We stand before You, Holy Spirit, as we gather together in Your name. With You alone to guide us, make Yourself at home in our hearts. Teach us the way we must go and how we are to pursue it. We are weak and sinful; do not let us promote disorder. Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path nor partiality influence our actions. Let us find in You our unity so that we may journey together to eternal life and not stray from the way of truth and what is right. All this we ask of You, who are at work in every place and time, in the communion of the Father and the Son, forever and ever.


Please remember in your prayers Maurice Lewis who died recently. Maurice’s funeral service will take place at Westerleigh Woodland Chapel on Tuesday 30th November at 11:30am. May the light of Christ shine on him for all eternity and the Lord comfort all those who mourn.

We  also pray for all our relatives, friends and parishioners whose anniversaries occur at this time. 

Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.
