The Feast of Candlemas - Monday 5th February

We held a special school worship to celebrate the feast of Candlemas today. Candlemas is also known as the Feast of the Presentation of Christ and celebrates the presentation of Jesus at the temple, as described in Luke 2:22-40. This is one of the oldest festivals in the Christian church. In many countries it marks the end of the Christmas festivities and is when decorations are taken down. It is called Candlemas as this was traditionally the day when all the church candles for the year were blessed.

This service was planned and led by the Year 2 Worship leaders who were very excited to share their ideas with everyone. It was lovely to welcome so many parents and carers on this occasion.
