Candlemas 2015

This week is feast of Candlemas 

In our Parish Eucharist on Sunday (10.30am) we will be holding a special Candlemas Service for all ages, with processing, candles and music. 

We began the season of Epiphany by joining the Wise Men to follow the star and find God’s gift to us. This Sunday marks the end of Epiphany, which we mark with the feast of Candlemas. Candlemas is when we celebrate the presentation of Christ in the Temple; when the infant Jesus was recognised as light of the world.

We also take down the crib at Candlemas: this reflects the end of the celebration of Christ's birth that began during the Christmas season. 

So the star which began in heavens is discovered in our midst. 

During the service we will be considering what our guiding star will be for the year ahead. 

So come along and join us for our lovely celebration of Candlemas this Sunday. It will be suitable for all ages, a space that is reflecting and spiritual, uplifting and beautiful... We would love to see you there.
