Day 2:

Did you find yesterday’s window in Grasby Close? You should have spotted the image of a candle above. Find today’s window in Hucclecote Road near the chemist!

Hucclecote’s Advent Calendar

Each day during Advent find a window somewhere around Hucclecote displaying today’s poster. Today you need to look in Grasby Close!

Thanks to Nick Butler for his work in putting this together.

Worship At Home: Advent Sunday

Welcome to our worship at home together on Advent Sunday.

Today’s service is provided for the Gloucestershire Circuit, but it continues to follow the themes which began last week for Hucclecote and Lonsdale Road Methodist Churches. We are following the theme ‘Worship in the Waiting’ using resources from Engage Worship. This week for the first Sunday of Advent we reflect on Holy Suspense.

Hucclecote Advent Calendar and Advent Trail – #Godiswithus

Follow Hucclecote’s Advent Calendar here. Each day a picture will be posted in a window somewhere in Hucclecote and you can go and see if you can spot the them. The location each day will be posted here. Thanks to Nick Butler for the idea and for preparing the poster images.

The Junior Church have also organised and Advent trail. Letters will be displayed in windows (sometimes the same windows as the Advent Calendar) which when collected together will make a phrase.

This is part of our contribution to #Godiswithus the Methodist Church’s Christmas campaign:

“The Methodist Church Christmas campaign for 2020 #GodIsWithUs seeks to share this good news through twenty-four stories of individuals and their experiences of this extraordinary year. Each day of Advent we will share a testimony from somebody connected to the Methodist Church reflecting on what hope has looked like for them this year and how they have experienced God with them.

The individuals whose stories the campaign tells include those who have felt the painful effects of isolation this year, who have experienced extreme poverty, who have struggled with poor mental health, who have lost loved ones – like so many millions of others. But ultimately, incredibly, God’s loving presence radiates from each of them in beams of powerful hope. Hope that is so necessary for such a time as this.

The campaign name, which ties in with our Presidential theme for the year, of course comes from John Wesley’s purported words on his death bed: ‘the best of all is, God is with us’ which reminds us that even in the times which feel most uncertain, we can be certain of God. Who do you know who needs to hear this message over the coming months? ”  

I will post a link to these stories at 10am each day during Advent, along with information about where to find the Advent calendar picture.

Worship at Home 22nd November – Sunday before Advent

Good Morning! Welcome to our worship resources for the Sunday before Advent – the Sunday of Christ the King.

This morning we have links to two services. The first is based on theme of ‘Worship in the Waiting’ which is the theme Hucclecote and Lonsdale Road Churches are taking for Advent this year, and following resources from Engage Worship.

On the Sunday before Advent we reflect on ‘Waiting for a King’.

Worship at Home – Waiting for a King

Our Advent Bible Study begins this week and will be held via Zoom. You can join us by contacting me for the link (some of you have already done so). You will need a copy of the resource book of daily devotions which you can obtain from Engage Worship here

The second service this morning is our service provided for the Gloucestershire Circuit, this week led by Rev’d Michelle Ireland – a minister in the Forest of Dean.

Daily Advent and Huccelcote Methodist Advent Calendar

During Advent, beginning on December 1st there will be daily posts here which reveal the locations of the daily Advent Poster. The Church has created an Advent Calendar in the windows of members around Hucclecote. If you would like to know where the window is then check here each day.

This also forms part of the #Godiswithus Christmas campaign and as part of this also I hope to post links to daily stories. The stories are of individuals and their experiences of this extraordinary year. Each day of Advent we will share a testimony from somebody connected to the Methodist Church reflecting on what hope has looked like for them this year and how they have experienced God with them.
