Christingle time at University Academy Holbeach

UAH Christingle
UAH Christingle
Have your say

Younger students at the University Academy Holbeach enjoyed a Christingle service at the town’s All Saints’ Church.

They had made their own Christingles during ‘tutor time’ and also had assemblies where they learned about the work of The Children’s Society and rehearsed the two hymns they sang.

During the service, pupils in Year 7 and 8 presented readings and a short drama presentation about the meaning of the Christingle.

All pupils then made a circle around the church and, once the Christingles were lit, they listened to some reflective music performed by the Academy’s Chamber Orchestra and Chamber Choir.

The service went extremely well and the pupils really enjoyed it.

Head of Music Sam Graper said: “It was particularly inspiring to hear them all singing so loudly and confidently.”

She thanked Greencell and Tesco for providing materials for the Christingles and the church for hosting and leading the service.
