Christingle Service

1 Comment

We had a wonderful Christingle Service for pupils from the Nursery and Prep departments in St Remigius Church on Wednesday this week, led by our friend Mary Kerslake.

Mr Peace did a reading from St Matthew, pupils read prayers and there were lovely performances by Reception, Nursery and the Prep choir with beautiful harp accompaniment by Anna Luterbacher in Year 5.

Mary talked to us about how the Children’s Society helps poor children and how the money we had collected in our candles would help them. Everyone enjoyed singing the hymns, accompanied by Mr Osborne on the piano, but the highlight was when we all lit our Christingles and stood in a circle with our families and friends. With the church lights turned off it was very pretty.

Everyone was very careful to remember what Mary told us, “Don’t jiggle with your Christingle!”
