Light in Our Darkness Advent Service at Bladon

Light in Our Darkness Advent Service at Bladon – The joint Benefice Light in our Darkness Service will take place at Bladon this Sunday, 1st December, at 6pm.

Integral to this service are the great Antiphons of Advent, ancient prayers, dating from the 8th century.

Each begins with an Old Testament name or attribution for God, and ends with an invocation to the coming Saviour.

Each antiphon inspires us to use words and music to explore a different aspect of the hope we place in our God, revealed in Jesus.

This service is designed to reflect one of the major themes of the season: that we await the light of Jesus to enter the darkness of our lives.

Parking is available in the Primary school ground (up the lane opposite the White House Pub).

Do please join us for this wonderful service to start Advent!
