ADVENT

The North Buckingham Parish consists of the Villages of Akeley, Leckhampstead, Lillingstone Dayrell, Lillingstone Lovell and Maids Moreton as well as part of the town of Buckingham. Each of the congregations within the Parish endeavours to reflect a multi colourful richness and diversity of the respective communities embedded in Christian unity. Everyone, living within or outside the Parish, is very welcome to come and join any of our gatherings and add his or her personality to the richness of our Christian identity. Wether you are just browsing or looking for something specific in our website, we hope you will find our five Churches of interest, and would like to take part in our weekly worship or activities.

From the very young to the emphatically ‘not so young’ there’s a group to suit you, and we are waiting for you to join us.

The word ‘Advent’ is derived from the Latin word meaning coming. In this case it is the coming of Jesus.  Advent is the start of the Christian calendar or to put it another way, it is the Christian ‘New Year’s Day’, during which time we reflect on the history of God’s people as foretold by the Prophets and how the promises of the Old Testament were fulfilled. Each Sunday from Advent Sunday a candle is lit and placed around an Advent wreath for four successive Sunday’s, with a fifth and final candle placed in the middle of the four to announce the birth of Jesus as the Light of the world.
