A Prayer for Advent

 

In this Advent of expectation
draw us together in unity,
that our praise and worship
might echo in these walls
and also through our lives.

In this Advent of expectation
draw us together in mission,
that the hope within
might be the song we sing,
and the melody of our lives.

In this Advent of expectation
draw us together in service,
that the path we follow
might lead us from a stable
to a glimpse of eternity.

Woodlands Volunteer Day &
Carols around the Campfire

Saturday 7th December - 9.30am 


Many hands make light work!

This day will continue to focus on The Anniversary Garden, preparing it for the planting of 50 fruit trees in the new year. 

Following on from the success of the last volunteer day in November, our gardener James said:
 

"The planting up of our new fruit trees has come a step closer thanks to some much appreciated volunteer efforts on Saturday! In mercifully dry-ish weather, we tackled the old terraces near the orchard, starting a gargantuan task of restoring the yew hedge at the top of the bank and then removing great quantities of gorse and brambles that inhabited the terrace below. This has the effect of allowing foot passage along the terrace for the fist time in a while and letting much needed light flood the area meaning people can now sit on the benches below without being snagged by thorns! Once the terrace is clear, we can then start planting the fruit trees in the new year. This exciting task, however, must be first preceded with a second go at the clearing, so please do join us for another round of harty work and even hartyer company on December 7th!"

 

The day will begin at 9.30am and finish with us gathering around a campfire at around 4pm for some carols and mulled wine (weather permitting).

Lunch and refreshments will be provided to keep energy levels up!

If you would like to join us for some or all of the day, please contact the Foxhill team for catering purposes.
