Advent Bible Study

Come together with other members of St Gabriel’s as we journey through advent together though bible study and prayer. Each week we will pick up a different theme that moves us towards the birth of the saviour. There will be time to discuss, reflect, pray and share together. Take some time out in the busy run up to Christmas to spend deeper time with God.
