15/12/2017   Federation Christingle Service at Boston Stump 8th December

On Friday 8th December Key Stage 2 children from across the Great Oaks Federation joined together for the very first time at St Botolph’s Church (The Stump) in Boston for a Christingle celebration. Children from Wyberton Primary and St Thomas CE Primary were transported in 8 coaches to the church where they were joined by parents, friends and the wider community to give thanks for the life of Jesus Christ and the hope he brought to the world at this time of year. The children had made their own Christingles in preparation with support from The Children’s Society taking the time to consider the special symbolism of each part. During the service which was led by Rev Jane Robertson the congregation sang a number of traditional carols, heard readings and prayers from children from both schools and the combined Great Oaks choir performed. In a moving moment of reflection the 360 children each lit their Christingles and joined together in prayer. It was an amazing and uplifting event that we hope will now become a permanent Great Oaks tradition for many years to come. Our thanks go to the parent volunteers, our church family at St Botolph’s, the staff of Great Oaks and the children for making this such a wonderful experience.
