WHAT'S A LIVE ADVENT CALENDAR?

HEADINGTON LIVE ADVENT CALENDAR INFORMATION
For the last two years Headington action and Churches Together in Headington have co-ordinated a 'Live Advent Calendar' This turns a traditional advent calendar into something alive! Every day for the 24 days of Advent, a ‘window’ will open and a short performance take place in and around Headington. It involves 24 Headington locations and 24 performances – each about 15-20 minutes, one a day for 24 days. At each location a small part of the Christmas story is read and an act performs; it's fully inclusive of those of any faith and none. You can see last years' calendar images below or click the link to see a printable calendar for 2015.

The love of the human heart
And the peace of God bless us this advent.'

Celtic Wheel Of The Year - Tess Ward

“The Celtic Wheel of the Year” was published by O-Books in 2007. It is a book of original prayers and reflects the sources of my own spiritual path – the mystical Christian tradition and earth-based spiritualities. It introduces the Celtic festivals and Christian calendar month by month and has a week of prayers morning and evening for each month, so it can be used every day of the year.
