Unlit Advent Candles

To remember all those who have died in the Israel/Palestine conflict, Methodist churches across the country were called upon to leave their second Advent candle unlit at Christmas. Read more here.

On Christmas Day churches were invited to take a photo of their Advent Ring with the second candle unlit and send it to the Methodist Liaison Office, who forwarded pictures to local church communities in the Holy Land.

Below are pictures of some of the Advent Rings showing the unlit candles in Methodist churches.
