Wait and Hope – an online Advent retreat for families (YAC)
5th December 2020 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
This is an Advent like no other, as we prepare for a Christmas like no other. Join us, and other families from around St Albans Diocese, for stories, activities, and more, to help us reflect on the themes of dealing with disappointment, waiting, and hoping. What are you waiting for, in your life and in the world? How do we hold onto hope when things are tough? How does Jesus being born give us hope?
While we’ll be spending time together on Zoom, there will also be chances to explore your house and neighbourhood, make stuff, and get moving – so whether you’re good at sitting still or good at moving around, you’re very welcome. And we’ll be exploring faith with both our words and our senses. If you want to invite your extended family – grandparents in Scotland, cousins in Australia – to join you, you’re very welcome to do that too; just send them the Zoom link, privately, once you’ve received it.
Families who sign up before November 24th (we’ve extended the deadline a couple of days) will receive a box in the post with some materials to help them engage with the retreat. Anyone signing up after that time is very welcome, but unfortunately we won’t be able to send a resource pack.
Just book 1 ticket per family – within the booking details you’ll be asked how many people are in your household.
