Yesterday we had 400 kids in church – from our 4 local primary schools! They come each year to make their christingles, have a bit of a sing (very good this year), and have the experience of being in a church.

This year we had our Bishop come to give them a ‘wee word’ – he was great, charging up and down the aisles helping kids make christingles, and helping to wash up when the workers had a well-earned cup of tea. That’s the sort of Bish we need around here!

The kids were ever so good, and we have got the whole thing down to a fine art now, so it’s all organised well in advance. The best moment is when every christingle is lit, and 400 kids sit in silence. Magic.
