Flight into Egypt – Epping Church Hall

Fr Adrian Graffy, famed for his Gidea Park study days, has recorded a series of faith talks on the Christmas Gospels.

As Christmas draws closer we shall be reading the sections of the gospels commonly known as ‘infancy narratives’ with their stories of the births of John the Baptist and of Jesus. The three parts consider Matthew chapters 1-2, Luke chapters 1-2 and John chapter 1. They take us through these gospel readings in ‘liturgical order’ in such a way as to enhance our celebration of the Liturgy of the Word at Christmas, and to derive from the Christmas gospels profound insights into the person and mission of Christ the Saviour.

The videos of each talk are available free of charge on
