Advent at St Botolph’s – “Christ without…”
As we start the new Christian year, we will be reflecting during Advent and beyond on the meaning of “Christ without”. Drawing on our own identity of St Botolph-without-Bishopsgate, outside Bishopsgate, we will explore in our services, prayer and exposition of scripture the meaning of Christ the outsider. We will examine what it means to be the outsider today. We will look at how we can identify those excluded today and how we might bring them comfort and strength in line with our Christian duty and pastoral heritage as St Botolph-without.
