In Year 3 this week we gathered together to celebrate a beautiful Collective Worship. We thought about how we prepare during Advent and we also thought about Mary and how wonderful it was when she was told by the Angel Gabriel that she was going to have a baby boy and that she would call him Jesus. We understand that she must have felt worried and yet she agreed to do whatever God wanted her to do. She would have been full of hope for her baby just like any other mother and she had no clue about what would happen to Jesus when he was older.
Each of us wrote our own prayers and we placed them around our prayer focus centre point. We listened to ‘Love Shone Down’ at the beginning of our Collective Worship and then again at the end when we held hands with the people either side of us, feeling their warmth and the love that is in each of our hearts this Christmas. Many of the children said that our Collective Worship made them feel peaceful and many others said that they felt emotional as they thought about their families and all of the happy memories that they have made together. It was a wonderful experience and was enjoyed by all!
