A big thank you to everyone who helped us fill St. Mary’s Church, Chigwell for our ‘Christmas by Candlelight Service.’ The Chapel Choir sang a moving version of ‘Once in Royal David’s City,‘ along with Joubert’s ‘There is no Rose,’ Part’s ‘Bogoroditse Djevo,’ and ‘Masters in the Hall’ by Willcocks. This year we were joined by two Junior School girls’ choirs; one singing Bullock’s ‘Scot’s Nativity’ and the other, Beck’s ‘Someone Told the Geese.’ Parents, staff and guests joined together to sing favourite Christmas carols with organ accompaniment by Mr. Simon Winters. The evening was woven together by Senior heads of Houses and the Headmaster, Michael Punt, reading through the story of the Nativity. We appreciate the generosity of St. Mary’s for hosting our service. Money was collected to support the ‘Streets2Homes’ charity.
