Tenterden Community Advent Calendar

The Community Advent Calendar starts today with festive videos from St Mildred's Church in Tenterden from Sunday 29 November to Thursday 24 December. The first video is today (Sunday) with Lindsay and Jeanette from the Church of England in Tenterden, St Michaels & Smallhythe (the video will go live at 6pm tonight, please click on the link below to be directed to the right page). Jeanette & Lindsay say "Why have we created the Community Advent Calendar? Because we wanted to add a little hope to these December days, and hope is the theme of Advent. The wonderful discovery of the coronavirus vaccines has created hope but we still have some difficult months to get through. Advent is a time to stretch our hope muscles.

Sunday 29 November, the first day of the season of Advent, is the start of the Community Advent Calendar. Every evening in Advent, the team at St Mildred's will release a ten minute 'Advent Calendar video'. Each video will feature Advent or Christmas music, two short prayers, and a representative of a local group, society or organisation, who will share their experience of the last few months, strike a note of hope, and end with a Christmas greeting. Why not open the video windows of our Community Advent Calendar and hear what they have to say. The videos this week are Monday: Cllr Jean Curteis, Tenterden Town Mayor; Tuesday: Sara Williamson, St Michaels Primary School; Wednesday: Chris Northen, Tenterden Rotary Club;  Thursday: Karen Irving, Care Company; Friday: Roger Thomas, Royal British Legion >>> more videos follow
