Take Out Advent. Last year take out advent had a different feel to it. It came in two parts, the first was a Wall Chart crammed full of ideas and activities to keep you and your family busy this advent. Any time you needed inspiration about how to engage you and your loved ones in the time of advent you could have a look on the chart and choose an activity. Charts were available at the rear of both churches.
The second was the Reverse Advent Calendar (See above). To help us look out for others in advent, we took up the challenge of filling a box or two with food for the food bank, one item a day thought out advent! Instead of taking chocolate out of an advent calendar we made a Reverse Calendar and Chocolate could even be the choice for the Dec 1st!!
