As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet: ‘A voice of one calling in the wilderness, “Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him. Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low. The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth. And all people will see God’s salvation.”’
Luke 3:465 (NIV)
In this Advent period, help us Lord to prepare ourselves for the coming of the Lord.

Day of Prayer
Human Rights Day:
Prayer Day for Refugees
Hope Parish Church
Thu 10th December 2015
9.00am to 4.00pm
In September, the Governing Body of the Church in Wales passed an emergency motion for churches to show solidarity with refugees and those fleeing conflict and to welcome them into their communities.
Churches are being encouraged to mark the national day of prayer in any way they can.
The prayer time on Thursday will consist of 30 minute sessions on various aspects of the refugee problem with a time for open prayer.
It will conclude at around 3.30pm with a form of compline.
There will be music between each session to allow people to leave at an appropriate moment.
