Wymondham Abbey Advent Spiral December 12 to 16, 2016

Wymondham Abbey Advent Spiral
During the week beginning Monday, December 12, Wymondham  Abbey in Norfolk will have an Advent Spiral. In previous years this has proved very popular as a gentle meditation suitable for everyone. Visitors are invited to light a candle and carry it slowly to the centre of the Spiral and leave it at the manger.

The atmosphere is calm and reflective and it only takes a few minutes to walk the spiral – but most people stay longer. There will be places to sit and reflect. The beauty of the spiral and gentle music make this a ‘spa for the spirit’.

Throughout the week there will be special events to help with prayer and mindfulness. Opening times vary as follows: Monday, December 12, 2pm to 4pm, Tuesday, December 13, 10am to 8.30pm,  Wednesday, December 14, 8.30am to 8.30pm,  Thursday, December 15, 10am to 8.30pm and Friday, December 16,  10am to 4pm. A soup and roll lunch will be available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 12.30pm to 2pm; donations welcome towards the Abbey's support for those in need.
