We celebrated the annual the annual Year 7 Advent Service on the 9th and 10th December with parents and staff. We had a lovely evening reflecting on the meaning of Advent. The Music and RE departments had worked together in preparation for this service which was divided into three reflections.
- The Jesse Tree – A reflection on the hope and anticipation felt by the people of God in the Old Testament whose longing for the Messiah was inspired by God’s word spoken through the Prophets.
- The Annunciation – A reflection on the faith and trust in God demonstrated by Mary when she heard the wondrous news that she was to conceive Jesus.
- The Journey – A reflection on the difficult journey undertaken by Mary and Joseph due to the Roman census only to find there was no room in the inn!
This was a wonderful evening and our Year 7 students led both parents and staff in a thought provoking service helping us all to identify with the importance of the Advent season.
