Weekly News

This Sunday is the Second in Advent. In the Gospel reading John the Baptist heralds the coming of Jesus. From the starkness of the wilderness he makes way for Jesus by calling the people to repentance. The purple of the Advent season reminds us that it is a time of repentance, preparing us to meet Christ as the Babe of Bethlehem at Christmas.Click here for the scripture readings. 

Advent Lunch
There will be a Bring-and-Share Lunch with wine bar on Sunday from 12.15pm at S. Paul’s Camden Square. All welcome.

A Walk through the Mass
Each Tuesday after Benediction we will walk through a different part of the mass for 20mins over a glass of wine. A great opportunity to ask questions on what we do in church and why.
