Christingle Service

This morning we had the privilege of going to Westwood Church to celebrate our Christingle Service. Hosted by Reverend Joanna, the service was a mixture of the story of Christingle, traditional and some contemporary songs.

As always, the children were in fine voice and we all thoroughly enjoyed this festive experience and with Mr King on the piano, we were treated to live accompaniment throughout.

We managed to capture this wonderful occasion here:

What a lovely morning we had this morning. Another first for me was the Christingle service at Westwood church and a wonderful occasion it was too. Reverend Joanna kindly opened her church to us and after an unexpected stroll in the rain, we enjoyed a traditional service, with some KS2 children confidently sharing the meaning behind Christingle and some readings. As ever, I was immensely proud of the children, all of whom sat beautifully, sang strongly and made our first official Christmas engagement one to remember for a very long time. The sight of 96 lit candles with a church organ in the back ground carried me nicely through my training course for the rest of the day. Thanks everyone, what a super day.

Here are some photos to remind us of what we enjoyed…
