Christingle Service 2017
Year 3 and 4 celebrated its Christingle service with St Mary’s Church this week. This is something of a Davenies Christmas tradition with two main goals: to allow boys, families and staff to join forces and celebrate being part of a community and to offer thought and support for less fortunate young people who may be suffering from hardship at this time of year.
It must be said that both these goals were achieved with style as Christmas felt like it was arriving in the beautiful setting of St Mary’s Church with a mixture of traditional and more modern hymns, readings, handbells and playlets which all the boys (and some staff!) performed with clarity and confidence. Our parents and grandparents also raised the heart-warming total of £409.28 for the Children’s Society, for whom the service was held in aid of.
Thank you for supporting this event and well done to the boys for creating such a wonderful occasion.
