A special candlelit service of readings and carols to mark the start of Advent. The Advent Service, which is at 6.30 p.m. at St Mary’s parish church, Saffron Walden, on Sunday 2nd December 2018, marks the beginning of the Advent season, which is in preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus at Christmas. The service is based upon ancient and traditional sources of the Church. It starts in complete darkness and, as the service progresses, the choir, ministers and members of the congregation light candles and move from West to East, – ’from darkness to light’. The music is led by St Mary’s church choir and members of all the local churches read the Bible passages.
