On Tuesday 4th December St. Peter’s staff and children welcomed Dan Callow and Emily from One Life Music. We all took an active part in our Advent Retreat Day and thought about the importance of the season. The Season of Advent is a 4 week journey of preparing our hearts for our Lords coming. We all made Advent promises to get ourselves ready for Christmas. Dan and Emily taught us all some lovely new hymns and they led us, along with our Liturgical Group, in a Liturgy were we all show great reflection and spirituality in the presence of God.
During Advent you could say this prayer as a family everyday.
You are the Light of the World.
Help me to share
your light with everyone
Here is what some of the children said about the day;
Josh – ‘I really enjoyed the whole retreat day, especially the part where Dan thought he was going on a real journey and asked the children to wear his jumper and helmet.’
3C – ‘we loved the new songs that we learned.’
Lena : “I liked the Advent Retreat day because Dan and Emily were really funny and made it fun. I enjoyed making the human advent wreath with all of keystage 2 as well! I loved all of the hymns.”
