Candlemas Service

On 4th February, our Sunday service in the Princess Hall was designed and led by members of the Crosstalk group (Christian Union) here in College.

At Candlemas, we celebrate the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple. Students from St Helen’s read from Luke’s Gospel as the bible passage was acted out on stage, and the theme of the service was Jesus as the light of the world. As part of a very interesting talk, we had a practical demonstration of how important light is in our lives, and thought about how Jesus is a guiding light for each of us.

Lots of candles were lit and we ended with a lively rendition of ‘Shine Jesus Shine’.
