Advent begins on Sunday 1st December, and we launch the season with an Advent Carol Service.
Mark Mason leads our choir. There will be Advent carols and readings. I hope as many of you as possible can attend!
Also on 1st December will be our Bring & Share Lunch. Please, if you are able, bring some food (savoury or
sweet) to share on the buffet table.

A message from Tal Annan
Tal, a member of our church, writes: It is nearly the end of my charity swimming challenge, and one or two people
from the congregation have sponsored me. There is still time for more people to do so –
donations remain open until March 2020!
Here is the link again:
To celebrate the swim and to thank all our sponsors, my team and I are holding a party at
Parkside Pools Cafe on Monday December 2nd. It would be lovely to see as many people from church
there as possible to swell the merry throng! If people are able to let me know they are planning to come
I can allow Maurizio the cafe manager to prepare ample cake!
Best wishes to you all,
Chairman, Cambridge Unitarians
