Island Bay Community Advent

Hosted by the combined churches of Island Bay, you can visit us virtually right here every Advent Sunday leading up to Christmas Day to hear the Christmas story, sing some carols and get ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Island Bay Advent Walkabout!

Why not try something different this week and give our Advent Walkabout a go!

There are 6 locations around Island Bay that all tell part of the Christmas story. Follow our map and find the nativity scenes as you go. 

At each location there is a QR code which will take you to the story that matches the scene in front of you.
