Advent 2019

'Joy to the World' is the theme of this year's Advent calendar, which covers the four-week period running from the first Sunday of Advent (Sunday 1 December) until Christmas Eve (Tuesday 24 December).

Each day during Advent, a new window will be available to open with a themed prayer, video, or story.
