A four week Advent Series
On Thursday, 30th November we will begin a 4-week study series called ‘Christmas Unwrapped’. This will be an interactive study group, looking afresh at the nativity stories in Matthew and Luke, with some stimulating input on the Biblical material!
The series will continue on the following three Thursdays (December 7, 14 and 21). Each session will commence at 10:30am and finishing at 12:00 noon and will be held at The Hermitage.
Following the calls by Archbishop Hasam and the Patriarchs and Heads of Churches in Jerusalem for a day of fasting and prayer for peace and reconciliation, St. Andrew’s Church, Kyrenia will be open from 09:30am to 10:45am on Tuesday 17th October 2023 for prayers for peace and justice.
The time will be spent mainly in silent prayer with some reflections and opportunities to light candles and offer personal petitions.
