Advent and Christmas at Copenhagen and Aarhus

Posted on Tuesday 8th November, 2016

Christmas is coming and here at Saint Alban’s we are making preparations for this very special season. As well as our regular Sunday services and the famous Nine Lessons and Carols services, there is also an Advent Evening Eucharist on Tuesdays, the Bible Discussion Group on Fridays and a Pilgrim course on Sundays after Church.

The Advent Evening Eucharist will explore the Christian themes of Forgiveness, Fear and Faith through a combination of traditional and modern worship; with music, prayer, reflection, discussion and fellowship. The service will be on three consecutive Tuesday evenings - 29 November, 6 December and 13 December. We’ll begin at 18:00 and end with refreshments. Please sign-up if you are interested. For further information contact Victoria Wadsworth-Hansen. Email: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Pilgrim’ is a discipleship resource from the Church of England that explores what it means to travel through life with Jesus Christ. The course will run at St Alban’s on the four Sundays of Advent (from 12.15 to 13.15) starting on 27 November and ending on 18 December. The course will use one of the greatest Christian treasures, The Lord's Prayer, to delve into prayer and reveal more about what God is like. It will be led by Ursula Sonnewald, a Licensed Reader at Saint Alban’s. Email: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

The Bible Discussion Group, which meets throughout the year at 18.00 on Fridays, will have an appropriately Advent-themed focus this December. It will examine the
Christian balance of living in the present world while expecting the next. At the last meeting before breaking for Christmas, on Friday 16 December, the Group will hold a special bring-and-share meal. All are welcome.

Finally, for folks in Jutland, Saint Alban’s also has Advent and Christmas activities at Møllevangskirke in Aarhus. Advent Sunday, 27 November, will be celebrated with a Service of Holy Communion at 18.00, while the ever-popular Christmas Carol  Service will be held in the same venue on Sunday 18 December at 18.00. No ticket is needed for this wonderful occasion, but please come early to get a seat!
