Advent Service in church

On Wednesday 4th December 2019 we went to church for our Advent Service. During the service we thought about the meaning of Advent - 'the coming', 'the arrival', 'the waiting'. reverend Ian lit the first Advent candle on the Advent Wreath.
We also thought about the letters of the word Advent and what they could mean:
Reverend Ian gave America Class the figures of Mary and Joseph to come back to school. In Mexico it is traditional for families to celebrate the festival of posada that commemorates the journey that Joseph and Mary made from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of a safe refuge where Mary could give birth to the baby Jesus. France Class will take Mary and Joseph back to church we we go for our Christmas (Christingle) Service.
