Clent Parish Church

St.      Leonard’s      is      a      pretty,      rural      church,      set      below      the      south      flank of     Clent     and     Walton     Hills,     in     the     north     of     the     county     of Worcestershire.   We      are      part   of      the      Stourbridge      Deanery      of churches  in  the  Diocese  of Worcester. Clent     was     formerly     part     of     the     United     Benefice     of     Clent     & Belbroughton with   Fairfield.   Recent            re-organisation            affiliates            St.    Leonard        with        the neighbouring      churches      of      St.      John      and      St.      Saviour      in   Hagley,   all under the guidance of Rev. Richard Newton. We meet for worship every Sunday morning. We would be delighted if you would join us.

A      weekly      ‘Update’      (free)      and      the      monthly      Parish      Magazine     (modest   charge)   are   available   within   the   building.   Many      ramblers     over  the  Clent  Hills  enjoy  a  break  and  respite  on  the premises.

Advent

Advent is a season of expectant waiting and preparation for both the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas and the return of Jesus at the Second Coming. The term is a version of the Latin word meaning "coming". We progressively light the candles on each Sunday in Advent since the four candles represent the four weeks of Advent. The first candle, which is purple, symbolizes hope. It is sometimes called the “Prophecy Candle” in remembrance of the prophets, especially Isaiah, who foretold the birth of Christ. The second candle, also purple, represents faith. It is called the “Bethlehem Candle” as a reminder of Mary and Joseph's journey to Bethlehem.
