Next Sunday, 27 November, is Advent Sunday. We will be lighting the first Advent candle to mark the start of Advent and our preparations for Christmas.
We will also be collecting gifts for Faith in Action Merton Homelessness Project (FiA). Warm socks, boxer shorts, hats, gloves and scarves, bars of chocolate, sweets, biscuits, disposable razors or shower gel would be most welcome. Please wrap the gifts and label each one ‘for a man’ or ‘for a woman’.
The First Sunday of Advent is the closest Sunday to St Andrew’s Day, 30 November.
