Ilfracombe Learning Community Candlemass Service

On 2nd February 2012 year six children from across the federation took part in the Candlemas service at St Peter's Church in Ilfracombe. It was organised by the Ilfracombe learning Community.

The theme of the service was The Light of the World - and the children heard a first hand account of how people from North Devon are trying to help orphaned children in Swaziland.


Our children created a collage of Africa, made up of hundereds of tiny images from across the continent. This formed part of a collective display which was created in the church.

Some of our children joined a choir made up of children from all of the schools in the learning community to perform an African hymn.


At the end of the service we were presented with a candle for each school to be used during collective worship.


Well done year six for your contributions to an uplifting and thought provoking service.
