Christian Prayer

Prayers for the season of Advent

A host of resources for the Advent and Christmas season. The season is for most Christians one of anticipation and hope (if one looks beyond the commercialisation!), although at its beginnings the emphasis was much more on penitence, fasting and sin. For most Christians it is not just a celebration of a moment in time when a baby was born, but also looks beyond to a time when the Bible tells us that Jesus will come again, not as a weak and vulnerable baby but in power and with authority.

Check out the following pages: Advent Prayers, Advent themes & resources, Christmas prayers.


Advent Bible Studies

Advent Bible Study Themes

There are a range of Advent Bible Study themes available to download, some of which connect with the lectionary readings.

These are formatted as PDFs which can easily be printed off for your study group and permission is granted to do this, so you only need one copy per group. They cost just £2.99 (or $4.55) so are also very affordable! Check out the Advent Studies


Christian Prayer

Prayers for the morning

Are you someone who struggles to connect with God first think in the morning, when you are just that bit bleary-eyed, or in a hurry to leave the house for work?

Be thou my vision, Lord,
this day and every day,
the centre of my life,
the focus of my thoughts.
Be thou my wisdom, Lord,
the inspiration of my words,
in every situation,
Your Spirit my support.

Just spend a few moments quiety saying one or two of these prayers and allow the words to go with you through the day.

New Advent Bible Study for 2017!

Advent Bible Study

Songs are very much at the centre of our celebrations of Advent and Christmas, and have been so for many since childhood.

Luke’s Gospel has a series of songs as part of his introduction to the story of Jesus, and these have been handed down to us within our Bibles, and as part of the liturgical life of the Church. Many will recite (if not sing) the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis (maybe also the Benedictus) as part of their regular worship, so the words are familiar. But maybe they haven’t been looked at as often in their actual context, leading up to and just beyond the birth of Jesus.

The studies all follow an identical pattern, with a bit of a musical theme:-

Intro (opening discussion); Accompaniment (a little background to the passage); Verses (a commentary on the passage); Chorus (ten questions for group discussion); Outro (something to take away and think about)

As always, permission is given to duplicate and distribute the study around the members of a small group meeting.

Available to download as PDF for £2.99 or $4.55  from the shop (Kindle version coming soon)

Celtic Church

Celtic Christianity - A potted history!

If we go back to the very early Christians, living in the Middle East in the 1st and 2nd Centuries AD we find them spread thinly around the Roman world and beyond. They lived quietly in a pagan society, meeting in homes and informal gatherings. But they lived different lives to their pagan neighbours, living by simple creeds or confessions of faith....
