Christmas at St John's Church

14/01/22Christmas at St John's Church

What a joy it was to take our Year 7 students to our link church, St John’s at Hartford on 15th December for their Carol Service. For many, this was their first visit to this beautiful church, with it’s stained glass windows, decorations and Christmas lights. Indeed, ‘Light in the Darkness’ was the theme of the service, taken from John 12:44-46 and delivered by Rev Mike Smith.

Our music department performed brilliantly, accompanying carols which were sung by all students, and our Ethos Ambassadors did a sterling job of retelling the Christmas story with bible readings and prayers.

The highlight for me was an inspiring visit by one of our Year 11 students who performed two saxophone solos which truly put everyone in the Christmas spirit.

Many thanks to everyone who took part. We look forward now to the Year 8 Easter Service – the bar has been set!
