Christingle Service

This afternoon our Upper Prep and Lower Prep pupils took part in one of our favourite festivities, our Christingle Service at St Remigius Church. The Reverend Derek McClean led the service, with the children singing songs, making musical contributions and leading the prayers. Once the Christingles were lit and the lights were turned off, everyone circled the church and sang Away in a Manger. It was a wonderful start to the Christmas celebrations. Thank you to all the parents and families who came to share the service, and for your generous contributions for The Children’s Society. If you have any lovely pictures from the Christingle, please send them to marketing@hohs.co.uk.
