Advent Book Group

This year we will be reading The Christmas Mystery by Jostein Gaarder. The book takes the form of an advent calendar with one chapter per day. Although intended for a younger audience it is a rewarding read for all ages.

There is also the option to meet to discuss the book. This will take place on Sunday evenings at 8pm, and will be hosted online to allow everyone to join from the comfort of their homes. We will start on the 10th December and then see where the discussion takes us.

Books are available from the office for £8. For more information, contact Kayleigh (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Synopsis: Fifty years ago a girl disappeared from her home in Norway. She ran after a lamb and found herself travelling right across Europe to Palestine, and back through 2000 years to meet the Holy Family in Bethlehem. There she met angels, shepherds, wise men and other biblical characters who joined her on her pilgrimage; and she heard of many of the things that happened in the world in the last 2000 years. In present-day Norway, a boy acquires a strange old Advent calendar. Hidden in each of the windows is a tiny piece of paper. Little by little these pieces unfold the girl's story and as we learn what happened to her, another story is revealed - that of the strange old man who made the calendar.
