Advent Sunday - First

Advent officially starts today on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day. Time to light the first of the wreath candles for this special season. Advent means "coming" and as the days grow shorter and night comes earlier, we look for and prepare for the coming of the Light of the World on the Day of Judgement.

So today brings with it the HOPE of God's great promise first told by the prophets. It symbolises faith in God keeping his promises to humanity. The candle is purple to show penitence and fasting as well as the colour of royalty to welcome the Advent of the King.
