A Simple Celtic Advent Wreath
Here's a very simple but creative way to have an Advent Wreath at home this year.
No need to collect greenery and prickly holly sprigs — simple print the Celtic Advent Wreath on an A4 piece of paper, colour it in, cut it out and then place it on a dinner plate with 5 tea-lights.
There are four reflections — one for each week of Advent — that focus on the themes of Hope, Peace, Joy and Love for you to use as an Advent Devotion — why not use them when you light your Advent Wreath Candles?
Facebook Daily Devotions
Daily during Advent, at 10.00am, we will be posting a short devotion on our Facebook page. These will include scripture, poems and reflections... why not use them as a short pause in your day?
