Advent Offering

NEW for 2018!!

Save the date for your Advent Offering service

The Advent Offering service is a Connexion-wide event that raises prayer and money for the Mission in Britain Fund to support many amazing projects across Britain.  

This year our theme is ‘Overflowing Love: supporting Mission in Britain to give a warm welcome to those in need’.

Together, we’ll take inspiration from Jesus and Open Doors, Hull to explore how we can all give a warm welcome to strangers on our doorsteps, who come to our communities for refuge.

Welcoming Love – step inside Open Doors, Hull to be inspired by stories of wonderful support for asylum seekers and refugees.

If you represent your church or circuit, save the date for an Advent Offering service between 2 and 24 December.

You can use our Advent Offering worship resources flexibly.

With the Welcoming Love stories from Open Doors, there is an accompanying PowerPoint. You’ll also find Bible notes, an all-age talk outline, suggested prayers, questions for reflection, hymns and candle liturgies around Welcoming Love and the featured work at Open Doors.

Use these resources for a pre-planned service, or adapt elements and add your own ideas. Everything is provided for you to make your Advent Offering service suitable to your local context.

Save the date postcard - if you require postcards for use in your church, community, at meetings or events please contact us and we would be more than happy to send some to you. Subject to availability.
