Every week at https://www.stalbans.anglican.org/encouraging-faith/ you can access a short film from a member of senior diocesan staff to encourage us in faith together over the coming months. We continue to keep November as a month of prayer in the church nationally, using the prayer books and resources sent out on previous emails.
Wait and Hope – an online Advent retreat for families
5th December @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
This is an Advent like no other, as we prepare for a Christmas like no other. Join us, and other families from around St Albans Diocese, for stories, activities, and more, to help us reflect on the themes of dealing with disappointment, waiting, and hoping. What are you waiting for, in your life and in the world? How do we hold onto hope when things are tough? How does Jesus being born give us hope?
While we’ll be spending time together on Zoom, there will also be chances to explore your house and neighbourhood, make stuff, and get moving – so whether you’re good at sitting still or good at moving around, you’re very welcome. And we’ll be exploring faith with both our words and our senses. If you want to invite your extended family – grandparents in Scotland, cousins in Australia – to join you, you’re very welcome to do that too; just send them the Zoom link, privately, once you’ve received it.
Families who sign up before November 20th will receive a box in the post with some materials to help them engage with the retreat. Anyone signing up after that time is very welcome, but we can’t guarantee a box will get to you in time.

THE PARISH LINK MAGAZINE
In the current circumstances it was not possible to deliver the printed magazine. Previous editions can be read on this website on the Back Issues page. The magazine can then be downloaded to your device to read offline. Please consider printing it for a neighbour who enjoys reading the Link but does not have access to the internet.
We are pleased to report that the printed editions are being delivered again thanks to the many lovely volounteers in the three villages. It intended to print and deliver the December/January edition but please note that this will be delivered in the middle of December and not on the 1st.
