On Sunday the school’s Advent service was a great way in which to bring the school and the church community together.
The school choir and their families joined the church congregation for the service with the children reading all the prayers and singing the Scots Nativity. Fr Matthew gave an excellent sermon explaining to the children that the next four weeks were a time to prepare for the real meaning of Christmas as well as enjoying all the festivities.
There are a number of photographs displayed in the church dating from the 1940s up to the present day and these have brought home to me how just how important St John’s and the old Bayham Road school have been to the church and the wider St John’s community over the years. This exhibition of photographs is certainly worth seeing.
