Advent family prayer resources

Advent is a time when we wait in joyful hope, preparing for the coming of Christ. 

Our family prayer resources offer a weekly prayer, a colouring template and an activity to do together as a family at home. These encourage us to look to God, but also to take notice of the world around us.

We also have a Christmas family prayer resource to celebrate the birth of Christ, the light of the world.
