Welcome to our Advent Calendar. We have placed ‘doors’ around Ross-on-Wye town centre (you will also find them in the villages of Walford and Brampton Abbotts) and each day a new door will open to reveal a picture with a QR code that leads you to some Christmas music, thoughts, videos, and fun. Find the new door for each day, or take the family for a walk around town to view multiple doors at once! Alternatively, just click on the date underneath the doors below.

Advent begins on Sunday 27th November, Advent Sunday. Take a look at our first window, made by the childen of Oak House Nursery School. It is inside St Mary’s and part of our gigantic Advent Wreath.

Finally, when you are out looking for our doors, see how many you recognise. Most (though not quite all) are actual doors to be found in the town. Send us a list with the address or name or the building of as many doors as you can identify, together with a tie breaker, telling us what Advent means to you in no more than 10 words. Email or put your entries through the Church Office letterbox in Church Street by midday on Wednesday 16th December. The winner will be announced at the Christmas Mini Market under the Market House on 19th December.

The parishes of Ross-on-Wye, Walford and Brampton Abbotts want to wish you a Christmas filled with comfort and joy!
