Advent Wednesdays at DBC

iStock_000011091735XSmallPlease join us if you can for any of the first three Wednesdays of December at DBC. We will begin with a meal followed by an act of worship. We will eat at 6.30pm and meet (promptly) at 8.00pm. If you are planning to eat with us, it would help if you let us know ahead of time. If you are turning up for the worship, please arrive a little early (say, by 7.45) so that we can start the worship on time – there will be a cup of tea or coffee going if you would like one before we start. The worship themes will be as follows:

Wednesday 3 December:
Watching and Waiting

Wednesday 10 December:

Wednesday 17 December:
Darkness and Light

On Wednesday 24 December we will hold our Carols by Candlelight service at 6.30pm; we would love to see you there.

Advent at Didsbury Baptist Church


We are now in the season of Advent. We mark this at DBC by lighting Advent candles during worship every Sunday of Advent and on Christmas Day.

On the Wednesdays of Advent (4,11 and 18 December) we will gather for a meal at 6.30pm followed by study and prayer at 7.30pm. Our topic will be The Christmas story as told by Matthew. We will be reading Matthew chapters 1 and 2 over the course of the three weeks. Please feel free to join us on any of the Wednesdays  for the meal, the study session, or both. We look forward to seeing you.
