Advent Services

Advent is a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the coming of Christ. Wherever you find yourself, we pray this Advent Season will bring you into the presence of Christ. Be with Him – reflect – long for His coming! We trust you will find this journey to Christmas meaningful!

Advent Giving Project

We acknowledge that many people feel called to give financially during the Advent and Christmas Season Instead of planning a traditional “Advent Giving Project,” this year we are engaging in what we are calling the Faithful Presence Initiative. Beyond being a Financial Giving Project, this initiative calls us as a church to respond holistically – with our finances, with our time, with our gifts, talents and even with the individual personalities God has given us.

More information on the “Faithful Presence Initiative” is available here.

Daily Advent Readings

As we journey through Advent, we will be posting a Daily Advent Reading on the  main page of our website and also on our Attridge Facebook Page. These readings were written by members of our Attridge staff, our international workers, Attridge ministry leaders and members of our Attridge congregation. Visit us daily for a short reading to center your heart and mind on Jesus this Advent season. Printed copies of the Daily Advent Readings are available from the Attridge Welcome Centre.
