What is Advent?

Beginning four weeks prior to Christmas, Advent is the season of preparation.
It is a time of slowing down and turning inward for reflection and growth.
The Plymouth Church hosts a number of events that bring our church family and the community together
to prepare for the miracle of Emmanuel: God with us.
