The vicar of St Saviour’s is preparing for Christmas. Four Sundays, four services, four advent candles to light.


Richard loves Christmas. And he loves the ritual of the advent candles. Only this year is different. Memories and regrets threaten to spoil his favourite season.

Tamara knows this Christmas is going to be different. She’s been planning for weeks. But will it be in the way she expects or is there a surprise in store?


Ellen realises her new-found freedom isn’t as wonderful as she expected it to be. Can she retrace her steps and find restoration? Or is it too late?


Christmas Day. Richard ignites the final candle…
