Welcome to All Saints' Church here in Doddinghurst 

What are you waiting for? How often we say that when we want someone to get a move on!
But there are other ways of waiting rather than simply hanging about and procrastinating about doing a job or taking some action.

There is the sort of waiting when we are patiently ( or sometimes not so patiently!) standing at the train station or the bus stop- persevering even when everyone else has given up and caught a taxi! There is also that expectant waiting for a gift or a birthday or an anniversary or the arrival of a new baby. The air is filled with hope and we sense the excitement mounting as we tick off the days on the calendar.

The season of Advent is about waiting- waiting expectantly and with hope. Yes, that maybe for that special Christmas present we are hoping to receive or for seeing our family again or having a good Christmas dinner. But there is even more reason to be excited as we open the doors of the Advent calendar day by day during December. The Scriptures tell us that God loved the world so much that he sent His only Son Jesus, Emmanuel- which means God is with us. Jesus came on that first Christmas Day but he continues to be with us to love us, to sustain and to support us every day of our lives . And He waits day by day with expectant hope that we will accept His gift of love in our lives. What better Christmas present can there be than that?

Everyone at All Saints Church wishes you a blessed Advent and a Happy Christmas!
