What Is Advent?

Advent comes from the Latin word adventus meaning arrival or coming. The Hebrews looked forward to the coming of a Saviour or Messiah—the First Advent. Now, we are waiting expectantly for His return to sweep His bride off of our feet—the Second Advent. The Church has been waiting for Him to come back from the moment He left the first time.

Why Should I Participate in Advent? So, what does Advent have to do with celebrating the arrival of Jesus?

Traditionally, Advent counts down the four weeks leading up to Christmas. Practically, Advent reminds us to look forward to His return every day.

This season is about resetting Jesus Christ at the centre of our lives, and at the centre of our church. After all, when He comes to take us home forever, we want to be ready.

Expect to be inspired, challenged, refocused, broken, motivated, unified, encouraged, and most of all, expectant.
