I hope you will have fun doing these activities while we're unable to meet on Sundays.
Stay safe, keep washing your hands and find safe ways to play
A prayer for the world
God of love and hope,
you made the world and care for all creation, but the world feels strange right now.
The news is full of stories about Coronavirus.
Some people are worried that they might get ill.
Others are anxious for their family and friends.
Be with them and help them to find peace.
We pray for the doctors and nurses and scientists, and all who are working
to discover the right medicines to help those who are ill.
Thank you that even in these anxious times, you are with us.
Help us to put our trust in you and keep us safe.
Lord, as we prepare to celebrate the birth of your son, Jesus Christ, this Christmas, we pray that we will welcome him into our hearts. As the light of our advent wreath grows stronger week by week, make us strong in following him in the love and the peace we show to others. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Cut out the wreath and candles to make your own advent wreath. Colour in a candle and flame each week between now and Christmas.
