Welcome to St Martin's Church website.

Advent

 Advent begins on Sunday November 30th and lasts until midnight on Christmas Eve.

In the 5th century Advent began on 11th November, St Martin's Day, and took the form of a six week fast leading up to Christmas.During the 6th century Advent was reduced to four weeks and later the fast was dropped.

During the season of Advent, Christians across the world take time to reflect on the birth of Jesus as a light in the midst of darkness. It is also a time to look forward to the time Christ will return.

'All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle'.  St Francis of Assissi
