Letter from our Superintendent Minister, Rev. Adam Wells

Dear Friends,

As I write to you we are just over half way through November, the nights are getting short and the weather a little colder. About this time of year I allow myself to look forward to Advent and Christmas.

This year in the Amersham Circuit we are offering an Advent Bible study 
based on the four Sunday Gospel readings for Advent. To help us think about each reading we will be using Tom Wright’s 2016 book, ‘Advent For Everyone, a journey through Matthew’ (SPCK). The Sunday reading will be the focus of each of the Bible studies, however, should you purchase the book you will be able to follow the readings and commentary provided for each day of the week.

Tom Wright says of his book:

“My hope and prayer is that this book will help individuals, groups and

churches to be ‘Advent people’: people of light in a dark world, people of hope in times and places of despair. People who follow Jesus."

The world truly needs people of light in a world that can seem very dark 
at the moment. I hope that you all have a happy and holy Advent and that as many of you as possible will come and journey with us through Matthew’s Gospel.

Best wishes and prayers
