Rev Rona's Advent Readings

This Advent we're being treated to Storytime. A special Story in fact, The One True Story, read by Rona, written by Tim Chester which can be bought here. Click on the day of your choice below and watch the video that appears!

As we enjoy this journey through advent together we encourage you to think about donating towards the work we do at St. Johns which you can do here. We suggest a £1 a day is a great way to respond to this One True Story.  You can donate by clicking here.

We're indebted to the Good Book Company who have allowed us to share in this together. Each Day Rona will read to us the next part in this story, a reading each day of Advent to take us from Genesis to Jesus.
