"The Lord himself will give you a sign. The virgin will be with child and give birth to a son and call him Emmanuel."
Members of our School and Parish Communities gathered together in St Thomas More Church to share carols, readings and prayers.
The School Choir and Key Stage 2 Pupils led us in singing both modern and traditional Carols, beginning with 'Jesus Let your Kingdom come here', followed by a candlelit procession during the singing of 'Silent Night'. Our pupils from Years 4, 5 and 6 shared the readings and prayers whilst our pupils in Year 3 presented the Story of Christmas through drama. Father John gave us a special blessing at the end of the service.
It was a beautiful evening which helped everybody to prepare for and share in the joy of the birth of Jesus at Christmas.
