Advent 2018

Welcome the arrival of Christ and walk with those whom God is raising up from poverty. Sign up here! by checking the ‘Advent’ box!

Advent is a Christian tradition which focuses on the anticipation of Christ’s birth at Christmas.

This Advent, we will use ‘Mary’s Song’ in Luke 1, to bring us closer to God at Christmas. Mary rejoices at God’s action to raise up the humble. That’s what Tearfund believes in too. Our work to empower people is woven through the material.

Prepare to be blessed, unsettled, challenged and thrilled.

How it works:

Through December, you’ll receive an email every Sunday which digs into the theme for that week. Then on Wednesdays, you’ll receive an email with an image or poem to help you stop and reflect mid-week.

Getting the most out of Advent

  • If you are using this alone, we suggest carving out 15 minutes in the morning or evening on Sunday and Wednesday.
  • If you use it with your family or group, reflect on it together when you gather. Use the creative segment in the Wednesday email as a discussion point or to shape a creative response.
  • For pastors and worship leaders, consider using our Sermon ideas (download here) on the first Sunday of Advent.

Please feel free to send any questions, comments or suggestions through to us at any stage using the button at the end of each email.
