Thoughts and Musings

Last Sunday (1st December) was the first day of Advent, or as it is called Advent Sunday. It is A double celebration, It is the first day of the Church Year and also starts the run upto Christmas. So what us Advent all about? It is a time of expectant anticipation in which we have to wait for the Big Day. I am not good at waiting, like many people. In today’s instantaneous get it anywhere world the idea of waiting seems to go against what we are told.  The modern world allows us to order whatever we want and have it delivered to us the next day or even in a few hours meeting our need. However God makes us wait and gives us time to prepare. It takes 9 months to produce a baby from ordering to delivery, so to speak. In that time a lot happens, and I don’t mean biologically. It allows the parents time to prepare, to get ready, to prepare the house, to collect needed supplies, to come to terms with the changes that a new baby will bring. As Christians we spend this advent time preparing ourselves for the celebration to come, the arrival of that babe born to a couple 21 centuries ago, who was destined to change the world through love.  As the carol says:-

“let every heart prepare a throne and every voice a song”

(Rob Fair Web Manager)

Who we are

We are a fairly traditional Village Church but always open to new ways of reaching out through worship to our local communities and congregation. St Mary's mission is to make Jesus real in today’s life and part of this is to welcome our friends from the Indian Orthodox Church to worship with us. Our church, part of the Church of England, has a dedicated volunteer leadership team headed by the vicar. As well as giving support and guidance, St Mary's provides a sanctuary at the heart of Knutton.

"We want to discern what God is doing in His world and join in…serving our neighbours, community and wider world."

Where are we

St Mary's is easily accessible with nearby carparks. The Church is in the centre of the Village of Knutton. Parking is available either on street or on the Community Centre Car Park across from the Church itself.
